WHEN HELP COMES NOT

Written by: Nicola Coutinho


Stuck!
Can’t break free
Your spirit crushed

Doom!
No way out
You smell fear

Rewind!
Backtrack a day
Alas! Too late

Help!
You need someone
No one comes

Lost!
Despair eats away
The verdict’s out

Down!
Losing control fast
Just give up…..

Light!
The spinning stops
Can this be?

Conflict!
Black, white collide
Grey bursts forth

Strength!
Like never before
From where though??


Momentum!
A bitter battle
Unknown forces whirl

…..

Triumph!
Love over hate
Joy over gloom

Miraculous!
Your demons flee
Sunshine once more

How??
Who saved you?
Maddening clarity ensues

You!
Grabbed the reins
Changed destiny’s course

Unbelievable!
But nonetheless true
You saved you

So..

When
Help comes not
You will suffice
