INSPIRE ME (from Inspire Me: Raw)

Inspire Me
Question or plea?
Don't know
Don't understand
After so many years
Still ask, Inspire me

What to look for?
What do I need?
Asking too much?
Not enough?
Thoughts race
Anxious hands trying
To catch life's water
Slipping through fingers
What to do?
Where to go?
Trying to amputate
Claw from heart
Breath is shallow
Heavy weighted chest
Screaming but
Muffled silence
Does anyone hear?
Inspire me
Open to receive
Willing to change
Yet the claw clamps
Release me
Life shifts
Relinquish battle
Purpose thrives
Inspired me
