Could someone take me out of the darkness?
Hopelessness enraptures my mind again...
I'm sitting on this bench...thinking regret
I'm just.......
Drifting away 
There's so much to learn out there
Somewhere in the abyss,
There must be a rope of hope...
Hanging and circling rapidly
The dreads of life kill me at times 
The stresses of life suffocate me...I hear the bell's chimes
I just pass by like a stranger...
Trapped in a bottomless chamber of loneliness
Hopefully, I'm making some progress
Could someone carry me into the light?
I'm in a darksome pit...I scream
I scream for help
I yelp
About a million times...
I haven't committed that many crimes
Hope shimmers in God's mind
Do you mind if I ponder a bit?
I must.......
Walk that narrow path 
There's so many things to stumble upon
Out there...somewhere beyond sight 
But, I write day and night...
The things I write sometimes even gives me a fright
I could get through the dreads of life 
You're as helpful as a trustworthy friend, God

Why must my mind submit to the shadows of every day life?
I should be...walking that road of recovery 
Do you mind if I walk that road....alone?

    I really felt the being trapped in the bottomless chamber of loneliness..there is hope somewhere, even on a road of darkness, very moving
