Reflecting

The sound of my entrance
Is drowned out by the gusting wind
Blowing upon the grass and leaves
Of this small neighborhood park

I sit down
As I've done several times before
And stare at the night sky
Riddled with stars and the light of the moon

I take a breath
And relax
My body sighs in relief
But my mind continues its war

I sit and I continue
The thinking that I'd been doing
I wonder what it all means
I wonder why it all seems to be

Insane
Am I?
Have I been?
The sounds of a hopeless world
Drowned by my own hopelessness
I stay awake through the night
To rethink that day
The day the world became hopeless
And I along with it

What I would've done
If I could've
But now I wonder if I should've
There's no way to tell
What could've or should've happened
All there is is what did

As the war rages on
I stare at the night sky
Riddled with stars and the light of the moon
I wonder why and sigh

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by a neighborhood park of mine where I always end up thinking for hours on end about things that matter and things that don't. It's just a very important place for me to retreat to.
