one man alone

Confession In My Rhymes - Poem by one man alone

depression leaves me down
it leaves me feeling lost
friends they leave my side
and left me feeling crossed

time just takes it's toll
the dark times take a hold
sitting near gods flame
feeling only cold

looking at the sky
then glancing to the floor
then asking God this question
what is this life for

telling of a place
that light won't show the way
begging god to take me
then begging him to stay

writing words of rage
inside the soul I tell
lost inside the life
lonely in my shell

standing just to fall again
sinking in depression
telling in my rhymes
the thoughts of my confession
