Nearly There

I step inside the gaping hole
And think back,
Respond to the attack
From those years gone by,

Create a living out of the unheard cries
Surrounding the dreams
Of a one thousand strong team,
Pushing on into eternity

Into the certainty
Of where I want to be
Of a life that needs the shining key
To peace, away from the drama

The long ending panorama
Of my ever glistening past.
Hoist the flag up the mast,
Declare what has been achieved

Declare what is perceived
To be a success,
To be better than the rest,
But my heart still runs on empty.

Always pours out plenty
At the sight of their ache
Slow baked
In god’s lonely world

That continues to hurl
My never silent life,
And its strife
Towards that one perfect dream

Of a stone blanket by the stream
Enveloped in calm,
A balm,
To the tortured leftovers of my soul.
