Has It Not Been Too Long Already!

Beyond the cruel days and empty nights
of living in a market, free
and beyond my ugliness stripped of its dignity,
all around and within only a void remains
where the eternal shadows dance
to the vague heartbeats of a falling life.

I have grown so weary of this vacuum
ever nagging from beyond my conscious mind.
Through forsaken dreams and hopes resigned
I have lost my ways in the maze of abundance.

Does a wanderer become weary too
of the trail ahead, fading into the unknown?
Does a vagabond ever feel so lost
when the trail left behind is forgotten?

In grand bewilderment my existence
wails aloud, “Has it not been too long already!”

Hear ‘Has It Not Been Too Long Already!’ being read by me.
