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.

Free?
Perhaps.
Maybe.
Time will tell if I can truly be an escapee.

Wind.
