Search for meaning

By: Alan Berger

I have not done anything wrong
Then again, my memory
Ain’t that long
A walk in the sunny park
Has become a stroll in quicksand
In the dark
I watch the news
And search to see
Who has got it worse?
It does not help
It doesn’t remove my curse
I should not complain
But I do
I should keep in the race
Even if I think I’m through
It’s not like I have a choice
My alone time in the wilderness
Is not the only voice
And if the answers are only
That humans are a mistake
Find a big eraser
For the future and past steps
You may take
I think I’ll stay in the saddle
And enjoy the battle
