Poet's Notes

This poem written for my brother's friend, who in his pain, anguish and arrogance over his pending divorce, committed the unspeakable tragedy of taking his wife's life and then his own.  I pray that both of their souls are now at peace.

Dead Man's Plea

I want to be set free
I'm locked away without a key
I want someone to come rescue me
From the prison of my own insanity
I want to be set free
Give me back my dignity
Do I have to let go or take my life away
Out of black and into grey
I want to be set free
Where is my identity
Where do I go 
to find my lost soul?

I want to be set free
Looking hard for serenity
I'm sure its right here in plain view
If only I could  stop from loving you

    Sad. I work with kids, some of whom are suicidal. There are still a lot of unsolved mysteries on the functioning of the human mind. Vince
