A Sign

This life I built
is falling away
from me today

Another disappointment
What does the universe want?
Why am I here?

I look to the clear heavens
blue is only an illusion
as is my desire for success

to give up seems like defeat
yet the battle is not mine to win
unless it is the battle for me

a sign would be comforting
the universe works in mysterious ways
a bird narrowly misses shitting on me

not all is lost under the turning grey
as the rain begins to fall
and the beginning and the end meet
