    sometimes i don't see the purpose in expressing me--

    it seems i defeat my own purpose--
    while
    the plight of me is confounding yet necessary--
    and a festering light--
    interrupting my spiritual sleep--
    leaving me tossing and turning--
    I* open and and half awake--
    learning from
    mistakes i never made--
    teaching lessons i never learned--
    raising questions i never asked--
    until i ran out of causation--

    no more cookies in my excuse jar--
    only crumbs representing
    failure to plan--
    therefore planning to fail--
    representing the life i feel i lead--
    representing--
    the
    reason Y*

    I* don't feel expressing me is so important anymore--
    buttering bread all morning @ 5.75 and hour--
    when my gift is priceless--
    what type of **** is that?

    (that's the world)

    and it's infinite and absolute.
    and cruel.

    but i can't help living.
