I Wonder (Spoken Word)

I sometimes find myself wondering.

I wonder where we’ll be in

five years,

and whether the world

will still turn.

I wonder what lies before me,

awaiting time,

hoping that my last breath

isn’t tonight.

I wonder whether religion

will exist,

and if heaven is for me

or hell.

I wonder if death will hurt,

or relieve

me from my life,

finally free.

I wonder what you will think,

when you

strip my clothes from me,

and see.

I wonder if you expect them,

the scars,

marks going nowhere,

just stuck.

I wonder if you’ll walk away,

wondering why

and asking me how,

and go.

I wonder if you’ll stay,

accept them

and know they are me,

part of me.
