Nothing Left

January 11, 2008
By Ken Bevington, Shirley, MA

Nowhere left to go,
Everything is falling apart.
I’m quickly running out of options,
It seems the world is against me.

God please tell me what to do,
Where to go, what to find
How will I know when I get there?

I’m tired of bottling it all up,
But I dare not release
The demon within
My heart and soul;

Where is the light?
At the end of this empty tunnel.
Fighting to find
Where I am.

Suddenly a shock,
Rips into my heart.
Fear, panic, shaken, loss.
My eyes are finally open.
Focus, look up and see,
What it’s finally done to me
Now it’s all just one big mess
Now I have nothing left
