Here I Am

Floating in the lake of nothingness

Words flowing in and out 

They bear no meaning

Or, do they?


Thrashing my arms and legs about

Stuck in the thralls of life

I am searching for an answer

Or, am I?


Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting

I sense everything around me

It is beautiful and real

Or, is it?


Typing and thinking these useless words

I try to reach out to you

You will understand

Or, will you?
