DESPAIR

What can this life offer me
besides sorrow and despair?
I wake up every morning
breathing toxic air.
I try to overcome it
and I struggle to be strong,
but the pain is so constricting
that I'm crying before long.
My body moves so stiffly
with neither destination nor thought.
I circle 'round my quarters
with my face strained and taut.
My throat is pained with sadness.
My heart, a barren place.
My mind is numb from any thought
and confusion has washed my face.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
