Restless In The World

Restless In the World — Kaylaa T. Blackwell
Restless In the World — Kaylaa T. Blackwell

You get scared of the future
Then tomorrow comes
The only thing is sure
Is time seeping away
In your anxiety
In your busyness
In your being
In your obedience
In your subversiveness
In our paradoxical complexities
And Human contradictions.

You ask:
What am I to become?
Who am I to be?
Am I living wrong?
Am I doing it right?
Is it Wise…
Is it Foolhardy…
To set sights above
What mind can not fathom?
What inner renderings cannot simplify…
Giving birth to synthetized composites.

To not fully comprehend
Objective reality
Purposeful compulsions
Mind and body derelictions
And learned convictions
Bittersweet convulsions
Missed opportunities
For real connections
In the every day existence?

To want more
To want less
To be better
In spirit
And in truth
To be content
And at rest
With one’s choices
And vices?

To seek an explanation
Of why
The tangible
And intangible
Are the way
They are
And traversing
Our paths?
Colliding with our earthly explorations
As Conquerors
Life Wanderers
Or Languid aficionados.

Take heed
Take rest
In knowing
Restless is a part
Of Living
With purpose
A reminder to
Not forget
How lucky
We are
To be alive
Partaking in
The existential.

  1. Wonderful as to be expected. To convey the conflicts within ourselves and how we reason as a path to existential nature of human beings… Very brilliant, no thought or reason, unimportant or trivial. You give it all deeper mean. Very well done!
