“Duties” – A Poem

Blinking cursor on the screen

Hidden message for me to glean

***

There are times when I am happy

I walk down that road when it is open

***

And then, the roadblock closes me off

I have to turn away or stand still waiting

That is when I begin hating

Myself

***

The sadness always comes

A most dependable part of life

***

I don’t want this, but there it is

Claiming me again

***

And then, melancholy rushes in

I wave and say hello old friend

That is when I continue doubting

Myself

***

I rose again this morning

Bedhead crowning my skull

***

I felt a little better after a soul-crushing day

Chased my dreams away

***

And then, I shuffle on and the ache sets in 

I fall a little more in shadows

That is when I continue performing

My duties
