Treasure Island

Benjamin Michael Clark

(06/22/90 / Mattydale, NY)

Lost In Hell


When the storm roars
& Heads your way
& You have to ride it out

Be strong

When the earth chants your name
& Shakes
& Shatters the family photo in your home

Be strong

When they go on
& Take what's most precious to you
& Destroy it in front of your face

Be strong

When they can't get over themselves
& Throw their mess on your front porch
& Light that shit on fire

Be strong

When you wake up
& find yourself lost in Hell
& You can't sit up

Be strong

    I agree with Valsa below, We have to be strong to rise above the things life throws at us. A good write. (Report) Reply

    It does sound like a downward spiral, a metaphor for old age perhaps? Great mood and emotion of pervading unstoppable doom. (Report) Reply

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
