I'm Not Ready Yet

By Francis Grant, Jr.


I’m not ready yet . .


This one goes out to anyone who it might concern . .


You know, I have heard there is a normal world out there somewhere . .


I have heard the Christmas songs and I heard the sweet talk . .


In my thoughts and wishes, I once again in my mind’s eye. .


I go for long walks in the warm sun and feel the breeze on this cold skin . .


And to anyone who it might concern . .


I am not ready yet . .


My hands and arms are not yet strong. .


My feet are not yet planted in the ground . .


I am not ready yet . .


And to anyone that it might concern . .


I wait for some happiness . .


And see that in the eyes of this little child . .


As my stone face cracks and crumbles . .


But I am not ready yet . .


So as I walk into this cold place . .


And the masked faces wheels me into the freezing . .


Please don’t tell me it will be okay . .


Once again the masked faces will scar me and change me . .


So I can continue to have something called this life . .


But I’m not ready yet To anyone that this might concern . .
