My World

My world is a little off its bearings right now. i don’t feel it is appropriate to expand on that first statement, at least not now. But as my orbit was being knocked off its course a bit in the last several days, for a couple of months actually, i wrote this:


i am not who i was then;
i am not who i am now;
I am not who i am
whenever I think about
who i might be when.
i do not understand how
it all got so turned around, upside down
then, now, beyond
i am beyond concern
about who i was,
who i might have been,
who i am,
who i will or won’t be,
the same i could say
about any of you:
you see,
i only know
i care,
if all is to be right with the world,
you also care.
