I Run Through The World

Poem By Justin Zahn

I run through the world,
time drifting like sand,
searching for myself
throughout all the land.

What would appear to be it;
was only a hoax.
As my search continued
slowly losing hope.

Along the way I saw
some interesting things
different lifestyles
and identities.

One was a writer,
Oh how that seemed to fit,
but soon lost its meaning
as I grew tired of it.

Next was a married man
with a life of much wealth
but soon lost its touch
For my wife lost her health.

Soon turned to a widower
with my wife’s painful pass
Again I lost myself
not long did it last.

Till one day I sat dying,
without knowing who I was.
Identity not found
or never had one.

Who was I?
the writer or married man?
or perhaps the widower
or this old dying man?

Who was I?
If anyone at all,
Till realized I did,
that I had been them all.

Past Love

I stumbled on a face I met today
which beauty over took my growing eyes.
A face so sweet, admired by the day.
For which replied, I smiléd with a sigh.

Who Am I

Who am I? ...
Is there truely an answer? ...

For if I were to tell,

As The Moon Loves The Sun

I love you
as the moon loves the sun.
Cause without the sun,
the moon wouldn't shine.

Hold My Head

Hold my head, hold my head.
Watch! For the time spent aching
and shaking,
my head may lose its center

Wonder I'Ll Wander

Wonder I'll wander,
as I walk down this road,
to where it will take me,
where? I don't know.

Where Be My...

Look at this desk in disarray,
clutter like that of the waste land,
but yet we pray;
as the blank page stares back with mocking eyes
