On Losing His Faith

Poem by: Jaywrite44

Summary

2012 had a rough ending, and 2013 is not starting much better. I'm dealing with emotions I thought I put away for good years ago....but it seems life keeps coming full circle. There are days when a little girl and a promise made long ago are all that keep me going.

Standing at the cliff's edge,<br>

I appear on top of the world.<br>

Yet I feel crushed by its weight.<br>

Burdens bring me to my knees.<br>

I cannot stand beneath the pressure.<br>

Tears stream beyond my control.<br>

Loneliness consumes my body,<br>

And my mind.<br>

I long to become part<br>

Of the beauty I see beneath me.<br>

I have nothing to stop me.<br>

Sudden clarity calms my tears.<br>

I stand before the world,<br>

Exposed to it without mercy.<br>

Reasons not to escape me.<br>

Plunging in my mind,<br>

I hear an angel's cry.<br>

She whispers gently to me.<br>

Her voice returns my tears.<br>

I feel separated from the world<br>

And I want to rejoin lost loves.<br>

My angel's vision appears before me.<br>

Holding my hand,<br>

Touching my heart,<br>

Calming my soul.<br>

Though I find little comfort in this world,<br>

I shall continue onward,<br>

Searching for comfort,<br>

Searching for love,<br>

Searching for happiness.<br>

Faith in worlds beyond had been lost before,<br>

Faith in this world is fleeting.<br>

Visions of my own mind<br>

And beliefs in my own heart<br>

Seem to be all I have.<br>

I must forever look inside myself,<br>

For my only strength is within,<br>

And the only place I find salvation.
