Mindless Rambling

mind gone there's no more credibility
unable to accept any responsibility
trust is lost when will we find the closing 
cost
have no fear push those away who want 
to draw near
the temptation is great when there's 
nothing but hate
mentally controlled by forces unknown 
just want to be left alone 
continually being drug back like a train 
coming off track
an example must be set but it's so hard 
living with so much regret
knowing the future seems so bleak gotta 
find one more winning streak
only worry is letting others down the 
burden of holding the crown
identity has been misplaced along with all 
natural taste
thoughts are screaming into the ears 
mistakes made throughout the years
when will this storm end like a message 
that won't send
rains bring in floods of unrest and all the 
doubt fueled by this unwanted guest
never ending thoughts of heaven and hell 
wanting so bad to just hear the bell
physically asleep but sub consciously 
awake trying to find the right combination 
of pills to take
bury all the feelings within like writing a 
letter but don't know where to begin
just so tired of this rambling and all this 
mindless gambling

    Love the enclosed rhyme! It takes a lot of effort to string so many enclosed rhyme lines together. A studious endeavor, indeed! Enjoyed your philosophical fulminations as well!
