The Poets Dilemma

In the free-for-all of life
and "scramble to survive"
there are no easy answers
on how to stay alive.
-
Each breath is but a gasping
that tears the soul apart
as the helpless hand desires
to reach into the heart.
-
The mind in endless waiting
and desperation knows
that strength of mind is something
a poet always shows.
-
And even in the scramble
it takes to stay alive
a free-for-all is courage
demanding to survive.
