Facing my demons - 2

I hesitate before taking my first step.
Once I make this choice
down is the only way out.
Am I ready for this?
Or will I be just another lost soul?
Unable to retreat
Too afraid to face the demons further down.
My friends outside have become quiet
have they given up?
moved on to happier friends
who walk easier paths?
Why burden themselves
with my problems?
I take the step.


  1. Wow! This is outstanding and meaningful verse. It shows a dark edge mixed with courage. I find that appealing.

  2. :) Thanks! I'm trying my hand at a little dark "epic" poetry. I'm not very experienced at writing poetry, so it's sort of an experiment.


What do you think? I love getting comments!
