WIND // by Justin Tompkins

Keep my head up.
Keep my mind strong.
I was lost for quite some time.
I needed comfort for my soul.

I was a puppy lost on the road.
One side to the next I didn’t know where I belonged.
My body and my mind were separated,
existing in different dimensions – still.

It’s sad really.
I’m yelling at myself in the mirror.
Why can’t I think,
why can’t my thoughts get any clearer.

My body belongs to another soul.
My mind is all mine,
why won’t my commands connect with spine.

Time will tell if I can truly be an escapee.
