Feeling more alien than human,

so far removed from

who I am.

An explorer in a sea of endless life

and dying.  Living as I go.

Oh, I feel alive,

though not in any way I’ve ever known.

This world shows so much,

not all of it beautiful.

The face plant, the soft touch;

alive, living, actual.

All I have seen

makes me feel my humanity

and question how human

are those around me.

Seeking something worth finding,

so simple.

Takes me away from this place,

drawing power within myself.

I’m trying to see

where I belong here…

if I belong here…
