‘Looking for the reason’

I’m frightened to live

And face the never-ending game of appearances

I’m lost in the world,

I’m lost in myself

Don’t know what to expect

Nor which way to choose

I try to reach

Into the blind emptiness

All I need is a reason

To live and fight for

But where can I find it?

Maybe I’m condemned to wander continously

And never reach the unknown aim

  1. And is there
    a treasure to unearth
    Or will we
    wander at sea
    until our eyes close?

    I wrote this yesterday. And how I wish everyday of my life for the reason you speak of. Somedays it’s easier, somedays it’s worse. At least we have art.
