The sweat drips down my face
The tension threatening to break me
I wonder if I'll emerge to see
Yet another fearsome place

I only yearn for some more space
To find a rock and in the lee
Sit and ponder a mystery
And hope to break this furious pace

But yet no hope before me stands
I sit alone
My thoughts my own
Can only dream of other lands

I look down at my shaking hands
And know I can call no place home

Very interesting, not the emotions I usualy personally associate with despair, but the emotions are brought out vividly. I really like the flow of the poem.
