Don't Know Where to Go Now

Life's Ponderings

Where do I go now for I feel that I am lost;

have gone down so many roads and each one had it's cost.

Some that I have traveled have just been simply great;

while others were miserable and just not worth the wait.

Some taught me lessons I would have rather not learned;

others gave me happiness for which I had yearned.

The ones that left me feeling like I'd been hit by a train;

those I would rather just flush down the drain.

Now I feel empty and don't know which way to go;

feel like I have fallen into a deep and dark hole.

I want to get back out of that there is no doubt;

but try as I may I cannot find my way out.

It's lonely down here but I don't let anyone in;

because then they too would be caught up in the spin.

Time goes by faster and faster each day;

these demons inside I know I simply must slay.

Need to move forward and try another road;

get on with my life is what I have been told.

First I must leave this abyss into which I've fallen;

stand up, dust off and listen to whatever is calling.

But the hold that this darkness seems to have on me now;

is so hard to break free of and I just don't know how.

I will not give up and someday this will pass;

hopefully I will get it right and not fall on my ass.
