at a moment's notice,

I could just fly to another place
like that little situation I had last year
and just submerge myself in the
emotion of what was what happened and why
without realizing that this moment,
this day was slowly passing by...
at a moment's notice,

I could become double stitched inside
of my personal quilt yet not
without the guilt of wondering why
three minutes ago, I was full of
life, zesty, energy...
and, like others, I am left to wonder
what is wrong with me...

at a moment's notice,

I could submerge myself in the promise
of the rainbow yet fall apart
during the rainfall,
I could call on two or three acquaintances
and blink my eyes ten minutes later,
trying to remember what their purpose is...

at a moment's notice,

I could just be laughing and dancing
and prancing around gleefully
and, at the snap of my fingers,
suddenly become sleepy and sad,
confused and enraged,
disgusted by my feelings of helplessness of
being locked in this emotional cage-

maybe one moment in time

people will realize that the
culprit is my mind and not
my personal feelings, hang-ups,
ideas, control decisions,
there is no such thing as precision

when what you have is an illness

and rather than understanding and support
you're met by either hostility or stillness....

at a moment's notice,

ignorance could kill all of us....

at a moment's notice.

When I Speak
