Casper’s Journey

My journey (COPD)

Have I started this alone it would have been easier
For care then, behold neither and neither
And the basing reality of my double life does not seem to care
Which lung functions best as to give privileges like air
Because I do not favor the twins -one over the other
As long as tomorrow morning they don’t give me up
To become the helpless doppelgänger of what I once was, and is no more.

    Hi Cas (Ghost) and thanks for your post. It is quite the thought-provoking verse. The reference to ‘doppelgänger’ and the use of “Cas” and “Ghost”, as well as your life with COPD in intriguing, to say the least.
    Wishing you well,
    Leon (site moderator)
