When Nothing Seems Too Much To Ask

Soul Poetry

Those times when life

stabs you in the back

in cowardly fashion

and leaves you lying

puddled in your own life-draining force.

When prayers seem to remain-


and even more painful-


When questions fall by the wayside,

to the place where answers

come in only echoes of your own

mind's invention,

repeating back your queary

as if in mock.

When forward steps

proceed to only knock you back

to a distance even farther

than where you first set out

on the journey.

When nothing,

seems to much to ask

and all you get for your efforts anyway...

...is nothing.
