Inner Turmoil – Scott’s Poetry – 11/12/17

Inner Turmoil
© W. Scott Grant
October 25, 1999

I’m trying to find myself
Before they put me on a shelf
Am I still young-at-heart?
Can I still play the part?

Where all should I look –
In ev’ry corner and ev’ry nook?
Where can I straighten out my head –
Perhaps in a strange woman’s bed?

Where do all these feelings reside?
Should I look ~ dare I say ~ inside?

  1. By a certain age, we all arrive at this juncture. We look for that lost self everywhere but the one place we should. Your last line sums it up! “Should I look ~ dare I say ~ inside?” You’re onto something universal with this poem, Scott. 🙂
