Slowly Twisting out of Control

Slowly twisting
Out of control
Slowly wishing
The pain is no more

The guilt
The lies
I wilt
I die

To see from my eyes
All that I've been through
To see my demise
And know it's all true

To escape into my special place
I'm not sure why it seems so late
But from a tiny light are rays
Of hope

Drifting down this raging stream
It all seems like a broken dream
The fabric starts ripping from the seams
Of life

I grasp on to a hanging limb
And see my chances wearing thin
The brightness near me starts to dim
I cry

To sink below the surface's wake
That lonely branch it starts to break
So I let go, for I wont take
It's life

The muddy bottom welcomes me
And now it seems I can not see
But yet I'm glad because the tree
Is safe

At long last my breath slips out
I'm trapped down here without a doubt
Serves me right cause I'm a lout
I think

Through my head the memories fly
I know for now I'm left to die
Cause no one now can hear my cries
I thought

By pure luck a light appears
Dont know what it's doing here
Blinded too by all it's fears
But bright

I hold on to the mystery
And then it happens suddenly
The surface breaks and now I'm free
To see

Such a small creature
With such a large heart
It's hard to imagine
How this did all start

The love
The life
I grow
I thrive

I owe my life
Without a doubt
To that butterfly
Which pulled me out

Such a small creature
With such a large heart.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
