Technical Difficulty



At times it seems overbearing
sitting with heavy eyes
to look anywhere but straight ahead
is like navigating an internet cam
slow, fuzzy, unaware of the surroundings
there is no counter to this relevance
it simply goes unanswered, unnoticed
and it is the fury of the unsung zero
who is in a hurry to get to nowhere
there is no direction
navigating in the dark
never knowing where to find that safe haven
and no one can help....
no one knows how....
is there beauty on the horizon?
can the horizon be seen?
no one is to blame
we are the way we are
and that is the way it is
when everything lacks but the imagination
