a friend of mine had a pretty rough time about 2 years ago. feeling that they had pretty much lost whatever it was they had to live for and pretty much pushed everyone away. some people became so irritated that they abandoned that person. some just gave up because they didn't know how to help. sometimes we aren't equipped to handle certain situations. but we were a persistent group of friends. that person is doing much better now ;)

this pit is so deep and filled with such doubt

You look to the top and see your way out

you scream and you shout but there's no one about

you pushed them away who are they to be blamed

so you decide to take action with attempts to ascend

you get closer and closer with swears to amend

all the mistakes that you've made which have led to this day

but the lies that you spew aren't hard to see through

to a god you claim false and the friends that you've lost

all your pleads and your prayers are entangled in snares

the thought crosses your mind that it may be your time

but before you let go you'll admit what you've known

you begin to fall back with mild content when a hand grabs yours and
saves you from death

with a grit streaked face you slowly look up

to meet the eyes of that one who wont let you give up....it may be
rock bottom but you need not face it alone
