Just Don't Know:

I don't know what to do,

All the fight has left me.

I don't have any strength

To climb this mountain one more time

Just to slip back down.

The encouraging words

That used to keep me going

Are only empty promises

Made by empty hearts.

This novel that I'm writing has become

Almost a thousand pages too long.

The fire and the passions

I've always felt about my life

Has burned away to leave

An empty whole where my heart should be.

I'm just a little lost out on the big old sea

That no matter which way I go waves will crash over me.

I've forgotten everything I used to hold on to

Which has left me not knowing what to do.
