Which Way is Left to Turn

January 16, 2010
Which way is left to turn
when your life is on the line
you are about to die,
and you're still holding on

Which way is left to turn
when there is no one to turn to
when everyone has turned against you
and you have no idea what to do
but you're still going strong

Even though you're no good
you're all alone
These are just the facts.

You still have your dignity,
your pride,
your strength,
your heart,
your mind,
your body,
your soul,
but which way is left to turn

And you ask your heavenly father
to guide you in the right direction
And his response is
it will all get better in time

You cry for mercy
how will you ever get through this
but, you never find out

Will you ever know
Which way is left to turn

I love the title.
This, I feel I can relate.
Things are just getting settled for me,
but I still think there are hidden issues and troubles harbored inside of me
And I could explode any minute.
I always wonder, will it ever get better for me?
Nice piece.
Keep writing!
