Do You Ever Wonder?

I need a purpose for my life,
A reason for where I am,
Here, now, at this time.
I wonder.

What will unfold?
Yet to be discovered,
Like clues in a mystery,
Missing puzzle pieces.

Am I the rookie on a chessboard?
A Knight moving every which way?
Or Queen of Hearts in Wonderland?
Yes, I reign in Wonderland.

Wonder, Wander,
Wanderlust, Wanderer,
Wonder why?
Happy Wanderer.

Who is the Happy Wanderer?
Where does he wander?
Why does he wander?
Why is he happy?

I eat Wonder bread,
Tastes wonderful!
Now it all makes sense.
Wonderful, Just Wonderful!

Ambushed

 

In my mind,
I am blind
To the fact,
Can’t react.

I can walk,
I can talk,
In a certain way,
Brings me such dismay.

Why am I like this?
I‘d like to dismiss.
Why are they like that?
Caught, constant combat.

I wage war with transmitters,
Being ambushed is bitter.
My enemy deep within,
I will never, ever win.

Great funds are being raised,
Enemy not even phased.
To fight the good fight.
There is no flight, no flight!
