What Now?

Life is one way

And the other way

Is grey

 

Breaking apart storms

That always seem to ricochet

Into the dawn

 

It’s like life

Is Gods game

And we’re here

To be mocked

 

So we brave substances

That alleviate

This worlds grudges

And this over world shock

 

We can’t always save

The people

That are taken by the sea

 

We can’t always help

The people

That just want to be

Left to be

 

We can’t always stop

The pain

That others feel

Deeply

We can’t always leave

The past

That brings the scars

Into our reality

 

We can’t always love

The people

That hurt us

Badly

 

And we can’t always be

Heroes

Sadly

 

There are times

When the disheartened

Feeling takes its tole

 

And depression looms in

During the darker times

Of a grieving soul

 

So don’t hold our hands

As we walk towards

The bitter cold

 

Let us leave, let us go

As society looks

On through their tainted

Window

 

So as

Those howls

Call us in

 

In our minds

The darkness

Always seems

To win

 

You can’t save everyone

That’s what the world

Sings

 

And the frustration

That it brings

Just brings

A prolonged sting

 

But as the dreary months

Just seem to cast on over

As one’s life is just

Seems to get lower

 

But then something

Changes

 

And the hard work

That takes ages

 

Seems to take

You somewhere

 

Its pace

Takes us places

 

And what we dreams of

And anticipated

Seems to be waiting for us

To grab and share

 

And when we look

Back

And wonder

 

We wonder

If life off track

With its plunder

 

Was a sign

That things needed

To change

So it took us under

And showed us its hunter

 

Did we really want to?

Kill ourselves

Or

Was it too

Rid the internal

Thunder

 

To destroy

Apart of ourselves

The riot

 

That just screamed

Louder

Then the rest of

Our self

Which was quiet

 

What are we now?

Where are we?

 

Are people like me?

Out there?

 

Is there a place

For people

Like us?

 

To fit in?

Or are we to turn

To dust?

 

I guess

No one can know

 

So for now

I’ll just ride with it

And go where the wind blows
