Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


02 June 2013



They say, "You’re alive,"

"You should be grateful for that."

Can you tell me why?

Because breathing, existing,

hardly seems to be worthwhile.


I can’t even grieve,

the loss seems overwhelming.

Hollow emptiness,

like their well-intentioned words,

but no one can tell me why.


I, alone, must find

acceptance, and even hope,

meaning, and purpose.

My blindness shall not blind me,

to the answers I must seek.
