IV – My “Darksome Path”

I walk down a road of failures,
Leaving behind broken dreams,
Waiting, hoping, struggle, cry,
Warriors walk beside me, falling,
Unseen demons, dying screams,
Praying, wishing, asking why,
Dropped to my knees, you won’t kill me!
Stand again, walk through the pain,

Dropped to my knees, blinded, can’t see,
Stand again, walk through the pain.

    1. Another friend of mine died last week, inspiring the line in the poem. They’re doing an autopsy to verify suicide. Fuck me! Are you and I going to end up the only ones living until we age out, the strongest weakest links?
