Poetry By Ken in Rainbow Colors






I've searched a lifetime
My bewildered mind
Trying to understand why
And who in creation am I?


Who in a mirror do I see
Staring dewy-eyed at me?
Why am I on this earth?
I feel of little worth.


Are there unknown reasons
Than waiting out seasons,
That I was grudgingly born,
On a cold wintry morn.


Life so far is but a sham,
I do not know who I am,
I pretend to be someone
While feeling I'm no one.


Nights I toss sleepless in bed
Searching my puzzled head
Who am I? I loudly cry,
I should know before I die.


Years are a clouded haze
I drift through in a daze
Wondering why I'm here,
The purpose is never clear.


I look deep into my soul
To know me as a whole
But alas cannot believe
Dreams meant to deceive.


I think I'll never discover
Who's beneath my cover,
This false veneer I wear
Conceals who's really there.


I think I'll never know me
Or what I'm supposed to be,
Before my pretend life's through
And I bid a cruel world adieu.
