I'm running on empty
Fueled on what little I have
Pushing forward with only
My tiny light to guide the way
Tumbling down the rabbit hole,
Not knowing what is waiting
At the bottom of this dark abyss.
Hatred only produces more hatred;
Darkness only snuffs out the light.
Love that is freely given
Is the only thing, that can change my sight.
I cannot ask for it.
It cannot be born of pity.
I cannot rise on the broken wings of charity
What I need is for others to believe,
To cast their webs willingly.
What I need to stop this whirling free fall,
Is a community with out stretched hands.
But we are all free falling into the same abyss
So it seems too much to demand.
The world is upside down and spinning ever more
It is very difficult to heal and center
With no direction to grow.
So I write my words of passion
I write my words of rage
I write my insecurities,
So they're no longer caged.
It stops the spinning for a time,
But the world is still turning in my head
I show myself kindness and gentleness
So I may give what I have left
To inspire others to do the same
So we might actually create that web
And find some semblance of stability
And the opportunity to heal within.
