Lost in the Abyss

Life's Ponderings

The walls sometimes seem to be closing in;

time is going by so fast

so much left that I want to do

before my time has passed.


Sometimes it feels like I am trapped inside

an endless maze of sorts

no matter how hard I try to break free

always seem to just come up short.


Running in circles and spinning around

my head seems to be in a whirl

no matter how hard I try to get it right

life always seems to send me for a twirl.


Just when I think I have it all figured out

and know what I want deep inside

once again fate shows up and tells me again

no, you are not done with this ride.


To know what you want deep down in your heart

but for some reason unable to find it

lost in the abyss that is here in my mind

waiting on that lifeline and ready to grab it.


Waiting on somethiing to pull it together again

to make it all seem worth the while

all this searching and waiting and clinging to hope

that this may finally be the last mile.
