Lost and Confused
A drought of knowledge leaves me without direction,
wandering a fruitless desert, with no notion
of what to do next. I don’t think anyone knows.
The help I get quenches my thirst like a fire hose.
Suddenly, my world is flooded with way too much
so I feel like I’m drowning, but still I can’t touch
anything that seems like it will show me the way.
I go on, floating, for at least another day.
With April having passed, along with my poem-a-day challenges, I will continue to post in order to keep up my New Year’s resolution, for a poem every day of the year. Today, I took up a writing prompt from Robert Brewer’s Poetic Asides Blog, to write a poem about confusion.
