WHAT THEN SHALL I DO?

WHAT THEN SHALL I DO?

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

When life seems pointless.....

"
WHAT THEN SHALL I DO?

I am ill prepared to live.
Days seem pointless....
Without direction or purpose.
       What shall I think?        
What shall I say?

What then.......shall I do?

"days seem pointless"
a telling line...not that they are but that they "seem"---as Tom said...indifference...i think that is worse than total elation or total pain...
if we stop feeling...then why are we here?
this is such a compelling write to think about...and ask ourselves "is this us?" "is this me?"

This piece of brevity sums up for me the awful state of depression, when you feel nothing. When you are drained and squeezed of all feeling. When you have lost yourself completely and have no idea at all how to mend the broken you. These lines are relatable and will be instantly recognised by those who gave visited that place. Well conveyed Sharon.

Sharon, this poem captures the sorrow and doubt I think we’ve all felt. Of course, we’re focused on the “I.” Life is pointless... without others. So, the answer is, serve others. This is a question each person must answer, and sometimes we need poetic prompts like this to jolt our mind. Depth and brevity in one poem. Good work.

Some days just hit you like that, nothing slots into what life should be.
I think as humans we need a purpose, a goal, a direction, just a purpose to keep going.

yes we do ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
oh my ... stark and emotive for me ... like the scary feeling when one looks over a precipice ... to wake up and think there is no purpose in the day ... wow!
your poem also inspired me to realize that the day is a clean slate ... a virgin canvas .. waiting for me to answer those questions .. what shall i think, say and do ..i like the order you put them in ... we do begin all things in the noodle eh!? ;)
