A poem

As I try to put pen to paper
Or my fingers to these keys
Chaos flows but nothing more
I can't make sense of any of these
Words should run just like a river
Not torrential
Not explosive
I ponder why I feel inside
An overwhelming sense of negative
Emotions can often indicate
If you take the time to seek
What…

Without faith, I’m not so sure I survive this experience. I’m not sure my nephew does. And I very much believe he came to live with me, something I dreamt years ago would happen around the age of 15–16, for a reason. Somehow, I’ve always known. …
