Polar Bear

If my life were a blizzard
I'd be the polar bear within it.

I will survive.
It is the polar bear’s nature to survive such conditions.

But to others - I am lost
Even to myself

blending into the pale of the monochromatic landscape.

In a sense, I am safe;
lost to all who dare venture into the storm

But neither can I be found
