Dreaded nightmares launch a scathing attack
On my subconscious craving dreams sweet!
There’s a lot of crash and burn around
Futile efforts to find peace, I can’t, not even a bit!
The clenching fists of depression
Bludgeon my senses with brutality profound,
Breaking the shackles seems impossible
In so much negativity I find myself drowned!
The failures of the past create a raging fire
Gutted emotionally, I am hopelessly fragile;
And I thought that my hopeful endeavors
Would keep me agile for an extra mile!
Baffled and bewildered, I plead to my creator.
That’s the only option left to me now.
The age old perception ingrained deep within the heart
That the ethereal savior would save me somehow!
Swimming up the dark depths of the abyss
That has engulfed my life to the fullest:-
Such a daunting proposition, as helpless I stand;
One last fight; I have to give my best.
The ruthless falls did break my back
But I refuse to die, I refuse to die!
A ray of hope, a hand of mercy …oh I so crave!
A brave-heart I’m not, but to hang on I’ll try!
