Unabashed Confusion II -Who am I?

Written by: Hana Ryusaka

Who am I?

A bleary image through

rain streaked windows,

a wish devoid of substance –

lost on dandelion breezes –

a sigh in the ears of the deaf.

I crack my lips with

unspoken questions and declarations.

I am complete stillness, for once 


I am the thirty pieces of silver,

enclosed in frayed

betrayal, sitting coarse beside ten-thousand

glittering bricks of solid gold.

Still I call to you, through

wreathes of inferiority –

still I reach for you, through

misty veils and storms –

still I plead with you, 

rosy with hope and

unabashed in confusion.
