The Only Answer

The Only Answer

Did you enjoy your time there?

Every moment spent wallowing

Fighting without a thread of control

Trying to find any shed of light

Even when you looked within

Nothing there

Ghost!

All that self-mastery left empty

Only finding out the hole had more space

Realizing at that dreadful time

Prayer was all your broken soul ever needed

    Well done.

    1. A very wonderful poem. Indeed prayer is the master key.
