I wake filled with anxiety and despair
My body aches and is full of pain
My first thought is of what is not there
There is nothing I can do to stop the thoughts in my brain

I go to the medicine cabinet to take a pill for anxiety
But still my mind reels with thoughts of what I want
Why must I put this burden upon me
I’m trapped in a life where I must be nonchalant

As the day goes on it just gets worse 
There’s a nagging feeling that I’m not me
My mind and body beginning to hurt
I hide inside myself so no one can see

Will I ever release myself from this hell
As of today there’s no way to tell

    Millions of us share the pain you have put in prose here so thoughtfully and I hope now with the years that have passed there has been a place for you that you have found more comforting and fulfilling. I will read some of your more recent words to see where you have journeyed since this period where PUPOSE was in question for you.

    Some days you have to force yourself to keep truckin'. The ordeal is well worth it if you can do it habitually. God Bless. Vince

    So many of us seem to imprison ourselves, supress the true person deep inside and that can be painful at times. I hope yours can be released. Terrific flow and form while the read is very clear and understandable. Michael
