I Can

I can see
can I understand? 

The way the world turns
upside down
back up again?

Can I stand, stand straight
as it spins
never moving
from where I stand?

I can
oh yes, yes I can.

Holding Up, Holding Down

Holding up, holding down
World revolving upside down
Maybe tomorrow norm will come
But tomorrow
What will be the outcome?

When Everything Is Obscure

When everything is obscure
Upside down
In the loo
How can I think
Pleasant thoughts
Laugh or cry with hilarity?

Not happening

Crushed, lonely
I trudge ahead
Feeling chains
Of impending dread
A smile cannot cross
My doomed face
All joy is gone
It’s been erased.

Why I live
Why I die
An answer comes
As I cry.
