Step out of the sand

What do you do
when the world feels awry
and all that’s amiss
continues to grow
Where issues that seem
to not exist in your world
Suddenly flood
your existence?
Thoughts come like
an avalanche to disrupt
the quietude of life
So much more
could be so much
yet it is your world
and when is it okay
to sit back
and feel badly
for yourself
without it being
Is hopelessness
the same as
giving up?
Where do we
draw the line
in this giant sandbox
called life
where each grain
contains pleasure
or pain, sometimes disappearing
to the bottom of the pile,
not big enough to hold on to
not bright enough to see shining
only sharp enough to
rip our lives
into too many
pieces to handle.
