Elementary

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.
