Grabbing for Sanity

JeanMarie Olivieri

There are days when the world spins extra fast
or maybe itís me, running on a wheel
like a gerbil in his cage.

Some days Iím frantic
grabbing for sanity
like a hungry man grabs for the last slice of bread.

Some days Iím calm and casual
grabbing for sanity
like a mom grabs the salt and pepper on the way to the dinner table.

Some days Iím desperate
grabbing for sanity
like a student catching the pages of a term paper floating on the wind.

But most days, Iím looking for salvation
grabbing for sanity
like the brass ring at the carousel.
