Scale

It’s been a long time -
with sunlight in my eyes
and a lot to be desired.
Yet with a clear mind,
I still lack hindsight,
so I’ll leave for a while.

Every day I have a reason.
Can’t you see I try to be everywhere I can?
That doesn’t mean that I will feel right,
when I have to leave something sitting on the wayside.

Consider lost light -
the feel of life
slipping right through your hands.
Consider distance and time -
a failure to stay in stride.

It could be a long trial
or end of the line -
I looked it in the eye.
It’s often quickly
that words escape peace.
It leaves me filled with fire.

Dead silence as I’m trying to describe
the feeling of the outside leaning in.
A pillar I do seek and I rely,
a structure built upon resilience.

Every day I have a reason.
Can’t you see I try?
