Rock Bottom - Poem by George Krokos
Sometimes we hear about people reaching rock bottom
and this seems to be a place in the depths of despair.
All the paths in their life which they have most trodden
unfortunately only helped deceive and get them there.
When people say or do things on the spur of the moment
without much thought for the consequences that follow,
they are unknowingly plunging themselves into a foment
that inevitably increases to the point or feeling of sorrow.
If we all look back at those years of our life past
there’s likely to be found at some point in time there
we’ve subjected ourselves to this unpleasant blast
and so recall then vaguely we didn’t take much care.
It can be also a case of living beyond ones means
and being involved in some form of personal abuse
where we’re thinking too much of ourselves it seems
or disregarding those things we should not misuse.
Rock bottom is a place which feels hard and rough to land in
that from there we can only look up at those looking down.
No wonder it resembles in name a rocky sea or pool bottom in
which if anyone stays too long there they are likely to drown.
