A Crack in the Wall & Other Thoughts: Poetry

My mind cracks;
I shudder
even as I run
towards emotional
shelter

The fallout leaves
me breathless
~
This is life:
the probability
that no matter
what you do
or how good
a person you are,
horrid things
will land on
your doorstep
~
No matter
how concrete
your plans,
how rewarding
your smile,
a pound of flesh
is still taken
because they
know no other way
~
There is a crack
in the wall,
I tell you

I have been
running my entire
life from what
is on the other side

Standing here,
watching the crack
spread,
I realize that
my fear is simply
that I do not know
what is beyond it...
