The Gift

Afterlife
before Christ
what is it I’ve been
doing with my time

rewind
speed ahead
why is it I’ve been
losing all my mind

upset
unsettled
never at rest, a hole
always left in pieces

regret
no reset
wondering what could be
what hasn’t happened yet

unclear
when end is near
allotment of time
is not equally distributed

wondering the weight
of worry
how to measure
the stone on chest

how to receive
the wish
before
the breath

how to alleviate
the pain
wrapped around
the gift
