Read Poem: Dust to Dust, by Humberto Guida

I broke myself into pieces

I do not know how to put myself back together again

The place I was searching for does not exist

And I cannot find my way home

Now, I have no idea where to go

Or who to be

Or why I am where I am

I look for a clear path before me

But the roads are covered in weeds

I trip over my own feet

I have no one to hold onto as I fall

My faith has left me

I do not understand things anymore

I look into the haze ahead

The ambers of fire glow within

The darkness embalms the withering light

I find myself retreating with every step I take

It won’t be long before I disappear into the dust that covers me
