Final Scene

Walking along the waters’ edge
Bare feet sinking in the sand
My emotions teetering on an imaginary ledge
Guardian Angel...please lend me a hand

The turmoil inside, twisting like a tornado
Unable to distinguish between up or down
My thoughts being moulded like play dough
Bringing to my face a solitary frown

The thought of death is somehow comforting
Knowing finality may finally bring peace
I used to be scared of dying; now I’m scared of living
Please, I just want my pain to cease

I turn and face the water and walk in knee deep
The roaring of waves, bring to life my souls’ screams
I pray to God “for my soul to keep”
As the setting sun on the water gleams

The astounding beauty that my eyes behold
Will forever be etched into part of my soul
The water on my shoulders is icy cold
As I take my final breath and surrender all control.
