How to Exist

Wake up
Doze a bit
Finally get the
Will to
Live
Step up now
To the table
If you so find yourself
Able
Scour through your
Residence
For some
Edible
Sustenance
Eat and think and sigh
Such
Empty thoughts do reside
In the daily ponder
Get up once more
Destroy the evidence of
Your stay
Carry on
With the Day
What’s next?
There’s always something
Always something to
Distract
Live some more
Then close the doors
When the Day is done
Now it’s Night
Give up the fight
Try to find yourself
Once more
Who am I?
Ask that.
What will I do?
This too.
Remind yourself
How you must get through
This hollow life you’ve
Fell into
Or else
You’ll
Lose
Yourself
