A Dark and Dreadful Place

I have fallen deep inside my soul
a place where if you stay it takes its toll
a dark place
or so it seems
where the dogs bark
and the wind screams
where life itself
is torn at the seams
it's a dreadful place
or so it seems

but you wouldn't know
because it's a place where you can't go
a dreadful place
where babies die
the fathers don't care
but the mothers cry
every one is happy
but they all lie
a dark place
where I can die

I have fallen deep inside my soul
a place where if you stay it takes its toll
but you wouldn't know
because it's a place where you can't go

    Oh, I've been there my friend... twice, actually. It is a place of helplessness and hopelessness, but there is a way out... Best wishes, Keith
