"Apathy"

Cannot see the trees for the forest of my fears
thick gnarled mental roots thrust deep in grey apathy

can not is will not is does not is dead
self-imposed stasis inside of my head

self frightens self in experiences of life
experiece false, conjured imagination
imagination paining so self seeks the gutter
gutterbug lonely -- frightened only by dreams
dreams of mosquitos buzzing round the hazy fire
ignoring comfort, the hammock, tranquility
fear forgetting life's abundant simplicity

green caterpillar gnoshing green leaves, innocence
the fear of the gut stems only from the hunger
when the hunger leaves there's momentous occassion
butterfly blossoms and alights on a flower
trust in one's own self opens eyes and grants power
