 STEPPING THROUGH WITHOUT FALLING

Today I am wondering

how do I go on?

this pain

so much

to swallow

to feel

when I try to run

it still feels real...

The wind's chasing me

blowing my name

pretending to be friendly

hunting me its game...

I might be slow

I might fall

but I'll die trying

to reach the light

when darkness veils

so does my sight

Some days I want out

too many thoughts about it

I want to be happy

I don't know how

the scars are too thick

the days gone by

stolen by the thief

the elusive one

who gorges the years

gifts me my fears

my plate is empy

my cup dry

I stare at the mirror

I mouth,

"Why can't I cry?"

What do I do

when tomorrow comes?

will I let fear

bury me deep

so deep that no-one

will ever remember

the child never given

the Spring of September...
