Hopelessness - Poem by david lessard

Hopelessness is an anchor,
settled in a weightless sea;
It follows no right distinction,
Doesn't know from you or me.

It stills the raft your floating on,
It's like a boat without an oar;
abd it terrifies the open mind,
with doubts you can't ignore.

Your left in empty space,
In shark infested water;
You can't get back to shore,
as your soul begins to totter.

People throw you bouys,
They try to save the day;
You anxiously reach out,
but they're much too far away.

Hopelessness sinks your ship.
and strips the heart so bare;
that when your going down,
Your too damn numb to care.
