Fall To Grace

Johnny's up on the ledge again
Third time this year
Looking for a glimpse of beauty
That will drag him back down

But it's a gloomy Glasgow morning
And all he sees is misery and despair
God's curious creation
Has never looked so bleak

No kids at play, no laughter in the air
Just sullen, worn-out faces
And poverty everywhere

It's a life sentence Johnny knows only to well
But he puts his right foot forward
And finally escapes from his cell

Freedom courses through his veins
As he hurtles towards the ground
A five-second thrill ride
To end his years of hell

    Wow! What a tragedy. Too many lives end because of despiration. The emotion comes through your words. Keep on writing. Thank you for your kind words on my poem. Karen

    This gets me thinking adn wondering how many times I try to free myself daming the consequences on others and the souls that wait on my strength for my grace that is the key to their freedom. Quite deep Kevin, good job!

    Well, that is just very sad. A part of me wants to believe, yes he is free now, but I think of all the years he suffered, and I think also maybe he left loved ones behind. Much comes to mind with this depressing write. Well written. Love, Shar
