Hopelessness

Sharing a poem that I wrote on my Tumblr blog Confabulatingthoughts. I wrote this on January, 1st, 2015.

There are times when I feel all is dark Engulfing my heart and my soul

And no matter how hard I try to climb out I fall deeper into the murkiness of the darkness that unfolds

I know that life never pans out the way we plan it to I know that life is mostly tough and sometimes blissful I wonder if the Buddha understood this

When suffering is abundant and relief is nowhere to be seen

What makes humans so persistent

That positive thinking is the perspective we all need

To survive life’s tribulation, affliction and grief?

What makes humans so delusional

To belief that what we’ve lost is meant to be?

I don’t know the answers to these questions

Neither am I going to attempt to answer them

As I only know that we should live life as it comes

And not hide behind philosophies that cloud the mind

And the realities we all have to endure

Just so that it makes it a little more bearable

When it really isn’t at all.
