Breaking down

I’m breaking down.

What does one do, oh lordy, if I knew
It’s breaking my poor mind, I’m telling you
My nerves on edge, I grit my teeth
What does it take to find relief
It breaks my heart apart, it really do

Tears and angry words flow all around
Those bad vibrations, making so much sound
The anger starts, oh where’s my heart?
It’s ripping my poor life apart
Oh, lord what makes these crazy feelings start

There’s yelling, screaming  everywhere
It’s killing me, don’t know one care?
And that old crazy farm is waiting there.

If I should cure myself I surely would
Who really knows, it maybe that I could
I’ve read the books, or most of them
By Gurus, shrinks and wise old men
Hey, maybe I’m just crazy, I don’t know.

    That was nine or ten years ago Skat til I met an American gentleman called John Sherman, who gave me the right question to ask myself, and now life has never been more beautiful. Thanks for your comments, as always they are appreciated Peter

    Not crazy, human. In scripture is says seek and Yee shal find. Keep seeking there are answers to be found. Peace maybe but a few pages away.
