Can You See the Breeze – by Karly Robinson

Can you see the breeze

Rustling up the falling leaves

Can you feel the wind

Gently prickling on your skin

Can you feel it now,

can you feel it now,

can you feel it calling out

Listen to it yell,

listen to it yell,

swelling up inside you now

What is home

And when will I be there

Where am I

Except fighting this weather

Who knows when

It will get any better

Someone told me

But I can’t remember

Did I choose this

Can it be changed

Fearing the choice

Instead of the pain

Facing the void

Inside of this train

Of thought

Lost

Catching fire in my mind

All the time

It helps to rhyme

 I’m fine

Trying it out for size

And I’m biding time

Trying to decide
