and people came and fitted in.

A new life willing to begin.

No sea too risky or too deep,

to sap their strength – no time to weep.

 

Each one fighting for their right.

A life of freedom now in sight.

Survivors of life’s cruelest game –

to live in peace, their only aim.

and sunlight came today,

I gave myself a break,

away from a self absorbed existence,

a breathe of fresh air to partake.

 

and vision came today,

depression to replace.

My mind flooding with ideas,

I re-joined the human race.

 

and hope came by today,

a future I could see.

Solitude, a draughty corridor

that nearly was the death of me.

and for the umpteenth

time that day,

the mind unsettled –

in disarray.

 

and birds that came

for daily bread,

absent from the air –

the world seemed dead.

 

So still, too still,

pressure intense.

That day so different,

nothing made sense.

 

and for the umpteenth

time that day,

all sense of reason

went away.

 

any chance of hope

inside my head,

quickly replaced

by fear and dread.

 

What point – no point

to life, I thought,

when at rock bottom

some help I sought.
