When Will It Blow?

From static,
perhaps restless,
peace, calm.

Abrupt fear.
Never will I make it.
Too foreign for this world.
I won’t make it.
But I am.
It is always
How will I feel
when the day is here?

    “How will I feel
    when the day is here?”
    Sigh. The question with no permanent answer.
    reminds me of that bible quote, something like God’s mercy never fails, its new every morning.
    But don’t quote me…

      Yes, maybe we strive for some consistency of good, and maybe that is too much to request.

    I’m drawn in by the sharp precision of these very short lines. There’s a pulpable energy in this. Great work.
