A poem written at the point of no return in my life Nov 15 2015  and posted then, under the original title CRISIS.

Words,words,how are you? how do you feel Emotions on the brink, overflow,cascade in a stream of tears. How can mere words describe how I feel? So many symptoms exist, jostle ,'neath this over whelming sense of otherness, here, yes listening,hearing but not living! Zombie -like I struggled on. This crisis confronts me head on, confronts the risk ,adjuvant posed against its supposed virtue. Clarity! Enough is enough,live now,drug free,let chance ,let faith set sail let me just be , me
