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

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
