How does it feel when all of the forward
momentum seems to set you backward-
how does it feel when the walls around you
crumble like old clay,
and the world around those paper walls
shatters like a fallen mirror-
how does it feel to take a barefoot walk
through hell, and have it go unnoticed-
life pushes-
but where can one lean-
how does it feel to be a pillar,
when you don’t even feel like a part of
the structure-
it’s like hearing nothing but thunder
when all you ever wanted was a gentle
whisper-
just beware of that road, if you choose to
pursue-
you will be engulfed by the same cloud,
drenched by the same rain,
and stricken with the same persistent
pneumonia-
it’s like hearing nothing but thunder when
all you ever needed was a soft whisper*
