Can I Do This - Poem by Mandi Ducroq

I have been where angels fear to tread
The edge of life and sanity
The edge of despair and mentality
I have felt my soul fill with dread

I have thought to end this misery
The pain that took my breath
The only thought, that of death
I have wanted to end this insanity

I have met angels who want to help
Am I worth the effort and time
Are they supposed to be a sign?
Can I go on and find myself?

There is so much to do, so much to set right
So many apologies and I was wrongs
Will they accept it, will it take long?
Once it is done, will I go on?
Will I have new sight?
