taking a step

This life's journey is like climbing the stairs each step, year by year. moving up in the air the higher I get, seems the harder to breathe My ascent has stalled, sorrow seems to impede loss of passion to climb and no will to explore filled with anger, unfairness, ahead a closed door having desire and need, for a warm body to hold Fierce hurricane winds, they have taken there toll thoughts of taking a step, repressed by the tide it's filling the vacuum, where my heart use to hide filled with sorrow and pain, from life on this earth letting the darkness, decide what it is worth Is this journey over and do I need to lay down joy and happiness lost, my heart's closing down I'll know the end has come, if I don't feel the sunshine It's rays feed my soul, like a fine cheese and wine "My body gets nourishment from Mother Earth, sunshine fills my soul with Gods grace and mirth"
