I am not lost.  

When you see me sitting silently,

Smiling at nothing, talking to no one,

I am not idle,

I am not lost,

I am not crazy,

I am just being,

Taking a break to muse,

Taking a break to listen to my heart,

Taking a break from talk,

Taking a break from life,

For that small time,

I smile at the thought of my child,

I smile at the fact that I not in pain,

I smile at the reality that I survived days when I didn’t even want to be alive,

I admire that my break doesn’t mean misery,

Which is quite a luxury in this century,

So,

When you see me sitting silently,

Smiling at nothing, talking to no one,

I am not lost,

I am just glad to be alive.

Admire
