Walking and Wondering

I slipped out of gear and dropped my rear end.
I'm lost on this road and I can't find a friend.
The last time I felt this completely alone.
At least someone was there that could say I was known.

Oooh oooh ooh is anyone there.
My problem's beyond a tire out of air.
The monkey is wrenched and the nuts are too tight.
Too long I've been benched and there's no hope in sight.

The faster I walk the farther I get.
Away from my cares and deeper in debt.
To just end up here with no one in sight.
Some where down the line I ran out of fight.

So now I kneel down and pray for relief.
In hope's that my faith is worth my belief.
The line that's been drawn, disappeared in the sand.
As I walk and I wonder awaiting a hand.

    Hey Robert, I dropped all faith years ago. The only faith I have is in the beauty of life. Without being brainwashed since a small child who would have faith n a religion. Just live for this moment now and stuff the world I enjoyed reading your soul destroying poem my friend....peter

    Hi Robert, it's been forever since I've read a poem from you. No Matter, I am here, and just drank a red bull...LOL..Kidding, Anyways, back to a serious matter. You will find the faith you are looking for, better yet it will find you. I like the reference of disappearing in the sand, in the time of need. you just gave FOOTPRINTS an epic meaning... sending hugs and morning smiles. LINDA

    Wonderful metaphors used to give impact. Especially liked the last stanza, Robert.

    Now I can picture this, a wintery night in the cold and snow, and no one around, of course I can picture no one around when you need them as well! Beautiful poem.

    Thank you for stopping by my writes, I really enjoyed your visits tonight, I am glad I had a chance to visit yours. I enjoyed yours, the line -My problem's beyond a tire out of air and the following line both captured my attention. As down as a situation can be there is always a road to take. Hugs xx
