Should I Stay Or Go? - Poem by Dorian Petersen Potter

Where should I go
To look for happiness
I know the answer is all inside
Waiting just for the right choice...

And all of sudden I see yesterday right in front of me,
And within seconds seem to stand, as I see doors closed and others opened,
And for God's sake, I see, I'm not anymore, just the same,
Even when I still love you, Oh, my Love so...

Trying so hard to hold to, I don't really know to what,
Oh! please let me go! as pieces of my life I try to gather now, around
Broken and emptied vesels just laying now aside
Of what were all my dreams of your Love before...

You've shattered all my dreams,
Not once but too many times before, how could you?
And my cup has runneth over now so emptied,
And all of sudden, I don't have the strength anymore to fight!

I'm hanging low just from a thin thread
Right at the edge of a tallest cliff
As I think so desesperately at this moment now,
Should I stay or should I go?
