In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Helpless.”


more days than not

driving a car that is on auto-pilot

giving advice to people through one-sided glass

all they see is their reflection

all they hear is what they want to hear


unable to see the path through all the fog

grieving deep inside my shell

dreams floating high out of my reach

world crumbling around me

unable to see how I can help fix

not sure I have the glue to help rebuild

glue isn’t working on me


yet not hopeless

I may not see the end of the rainbow

but at least I see colors
