Wondering Pain

Tears don’t come, I’m wondering why.
Not a sparkle in the eye.
Memories are passing by.
Not enough to make me cry.

Wondering why my legs feel weak.
Energy is what I seek.
Writing is great technique,
but not enough to make me speak.

Wondering why my life is steep.
Concentrations hard to keep.
I’m trying things like counting sheep.
Not enough to make me sleep.

Wondering pain in my own land.
Memories vague, details bland.
A tear falls down into my hand.
Just enough to understand.
