The Struggle

In the middle of an empty parking lot I stand Strong winds blowing Light flakes falling Confused,cold and tired is what I really am No amount of coffee can help fix the matter But the heat that it gives does minutely satisfies ones soul Decisions to make and decisions have been made Yet no one resolution is easily obtained. The Strong winds are blowing The Light flakes are falling A coffee is all I have to really keep things going Watching people go left, right and about But not a soul can recognize another soul here in need In need of a true friend indeed To give more than this coffee and somehow plant a good seed. However These strong winds are honestly really blowing And These light flakes are increasingly falling And One can only take a limited amount of this cold It is not like I haven't tried To what I call home is where I will go Perhaps another cup of coffee will finally show a way.
