23. Grasp


How long more can I hold on

to the lifebuoy?

A year, a month, a day?

I’m drifting too far

I don’t know where I’m going.


Will anyone tell my parents

I have tried holding on?

Every year, every month, every day,

I’m floating in the vast ocean of knowledge,

But now I’m drowning.


My grasp is slipping

I can’t hold on any longer.

The waves are strong,

but there’s always another wave even stronger.

A strength that I will never have.


I’m letting go

of this lifebuoy that does not give me life

to drown into the world of mine.

With no pressure to keep me afloat

in a world I don’t want to be in.
