The light


The light

Standing on the edge I wait
Looking over I would surely fall
My mind wanders and I can see the end
I have no time left any more
Everything depends on which way
One step forward, or one step back
When did it come to this
How did I get to this place
Despair and depression wallow in me
Where is my peace and why did it go
Will I ever stop drowning in the dark
I ask myself all this as I look for the light

One step forward or one step back-been there on that edge. Keep looking for the light, it is there, just sometimes hard to find. Good job on the write.

Whenever I see my life as being less than what I want it to be, I realize I'm comparing it to someone else's. Envy will always lead to the same place - The edge.... This is a fantastic piece - 10 from me

How many times have we all come to this very road you speak of. Its not all bad , just looks that way sometimes... excellent write.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
