A woman lost

A man confused

What am I?

Coming from such patterns

A collision of intensity

That created someone

I don't understand

Me

I've wandered for a long time

Both lost and confused

Finding endless traps

And pointless paths

That lead me nowhere

And here I stand today

At a crossroads

Between my heart

And my head

Each path taken once before

One by the man

And one by the woman

Neither found happiness

Still left in the darkness

Of their pain

I don't want to be a convergence

Of their mistakes

I just want to be me

Where is the middle path

That lies in between?

The light?

The promise of

Contentment?

That I've desired for

So many years

And so I ask

And plead

Where do I go from here?
