Counting on Time

By Jurgen Namupira

I have a problem,
it's becoming a habit - 
       I don't like it...
I'm trying,
but my spirit is down
or maybe my mind is just dull
I can't take it anymore
and I shan't tolerate it anymore
I have had enough of 'it will pass',
Tell me when!
I need to know when
The day 
The hour 
and the exact second
Will you tell me when?

This feeling is killing me inside,
Victimized by my own desires
yet my words don't seem willing to rescue me
I'm a prisoner in my own mind - 
heavy thoughts beat me left, right and center
what's next?
who knows...
maybe a new confusion
or something else
you never know?
let's wait and see,
time will tell
