Battered Soul

The grief within
No one can see
This will to live
Is draining out of me

Yet the truth
No one knows
For none can see
This battered soul

They say this life
Has plenty to give
So why, within it,
I see no reason to live

Others scream out
Just listen to me
I’m never wrong
You’re sure to see

The pain is strong
I know it’s near
But is it life
Or death I fear

Mostly we have to dodge the foul balls, I think! Lately I feel like a blow-up bobble clown, myself!
Hope you had a good week-end!

The head hurts
but thinks for dropping by snaggle

Life or death, equally feared, sounds like.

As they should be.
