Just As Long As I’m in This World
Is there anything else I can do
to relieve this nagging sense
of regret mixed with a touch
of fear of the unknown future?
Maybe I should see someone.
But I feel like I know too many
people already. They crowd
my daily life—I feel I am too
infrequently completely alone.
But this sinking feeling I have.
I think I need to do something
about it. Maybe it’s just what
all of us feel. Or maybe it’s a
genetic thing. Maybe I should
listen to more blues records—
“I am the light of this world.”
