How can I be

I want to breathe

I want to see

I want to learn how to read

I want to hear

I want feel

I want to know that I’m here

Tell me can you breathe

Are you breathing?

I don’t think I’m breathing

I’m feeling numb

How can this be

How can I feel

How can I see

How can I read

How explain to me

How can I be

    Floundering for dear life, though apparently it is rather out of the line of vision, in subtle poignancy this begs an answer while needing none, as it were. Thought-provoking. Thanks for sharing.


  • baj-a

    You put into words what I have sometimes asked myself? how can I be and am I real or is it all just a crazy game and I a piece of it. well written.

    As long as you can ask these questions then you are. But we ask the questions anyway because we are here and it is a miracle. Well written.
