This Desperate Plea - Poem by DAVID TERRY

Where do you go when you’ve lost your way?
When the world seems unfamiliar
When you lose sight of who you are?
Where do you go to find your way back?

How do you start over when you feel so beaten down?
When the breath has left your chest
When you’ve lost your footing
How do you start over when you’re beaten down?

When does the hurting finally stop?
When you’ve said your last goodbye
When you turn out the lights each night
When, just when, will it stop?

How do you let go of what kept you alive?
How do you block out the past
When it’s what you dreamed of for so long
And how do you live without it tomorrow?
