Can’t Watch the News

As the chaos of the world moves closer & closer to home

I had no choice but to reengage & find out what was going on

As my heart breaks & my soul bleeds

I fear for my child & the world she is going to have to live in

Such unspeakable horrors

Everyday, in every country

It is enough to make you want to slump

Hide in as much protection as you can muster

Maybe the doomsdayers are onto something

Yet here I am, trying to be more

Struggling to find a place of higher consciousness

Hoping to make even a small impact

To bring some little beauty into such darkness

It would be so easy, so comfortable

To lose myself once again into myself

Open the bottle, plug back into the fantasy

Let the world pass me by

Leave the fight for light to someone who is less sensitive

Hole up & protect me & mine, be like everyone else

But I cannot, because I know there is more & I simply must have more

Either what I believe is true, or I need medication
