Suspended Animation

am here but not here
in suspended animation
feeling nothing
not knowing if i want
to live or die

wanting to heal fully
yet the world explodes
do i want to live like this
in a world where
no place is safe

how can i overcome my fear
when surrounded by uncertainty
men with guns
men with power
people without respect 
for humanity

my quest for internal peace
overshadowed by external chaos
i will go to heal
if only to die
having reached that
ultimate goal


  1. So sad and lacking hope; despondent.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on this, Judy. How I felt today. Tomorrow is another day. Appreciate the acknowledgment of feelings.
