Ryan Hardgrove- A Poem


Answers out there!

and the rains
coming down
like nails on the street
and I’m reaching out
into it
the loud shards of blankness
cutting through the air
rushing to the earth
while somehow floating

hoping something out there
can save all this
save this
constant cycle
deviate
the fucking stream
so as not to
repeat every shit mistake
for eternity

but the answers
are never out there
they live someplace closer

they live one place only
deep within us
past all the deception
we are cursed to carry
past the poisonous ego
and the confusion
of self love
and self hate

to search
outward
without first
seeking inward
is the first step
towards completely
deluding yourself
