Fragmenting Resistance

Lightning speed doesn’t
aptly describe the paths
taken by thoughts
grooming me for a better future,
for a time when apathy
is a slave to my happiness,
and joy is among
the many fruits of my labor

I keep reaching for the one,
to pin it down,
and make it stay
so I can see clearly
the way to satisfaction,
but direction is always so muddled,
obscured by the speed
at which my heart races
toward fulfillment

Maybe there is one
possible future in which
I win,
in which my twisted soul
finds less resistance
from the crude,
fragmented world I find myself
sheathed inside

This is a collaborative piece by me and my good friend, Christopher Rupley. Please check out his amazing writing. He’s great with haiku!
