When Something Isn't Right

Have you ever had a nagging feeling that something isn't right ? Now multiply a hundredfold, this represents my plight The world laid out before you, on the surface all is well Non specific swirling darkness, grave forebodings dwell Try to keep your focus, through long shadows ebbing light While all along dark spectre creeping, approaching endless night Not a fear of ghosts and goblins, or monsters under bed But a feeling deep inside the core, that penetrates the head Things are not so bad you say, you're better off than many If it's comfort you are seeking, you're not receiving any Suffocates your optimism, and all that's good and true You ask yourself what is this thing, and what it wants from you Search within you, try to find, your strength and your voice Looking for the answer as if you had a choice You want to see its ugly head that you may stand and fight But as for now, all you know is something isn't right

This is brilliantly written Walter. That nagging feeling - it is especially gruesome when you can't find out what is wrong and yet you have to work to make things right. Very well written!

A perfect Halloween poem to give us the chills...A very impressive peace. I felt your unease... Every time something is going well... we know it can't go on forever and something will eventually happen... we can feel it coming...

Walter, everything nags inside me.. so I know the feeling.. it just keeps lingering and growing in the inside.. sometimes it is really nothing.. but, the comforting part sounds good. a very optimistic point you have here. never finding what is right when it comes to answers. how right it is to feel wrong.. interesting... .. have yourself a very wonderful day ;-) LINDA
