In the middle of everything
in the middle of nothing at all
somewhere in the middle I find myself
and I am standing and I am crying.
I am standing in the hall.
I am waiting for the fall.
Walk through the fire, you may get burned.
Swim in the water and you might find yourself drowned.
I let the emotions surround me
I let them run over me
and I find myself asking “why?”
but I stop myself.
I am just standing here
minding my own business.
I’m sad that what is around me will all soon be gone.
Sad is just what I am feeling from where I am standing in the middle of right now.
