failing

Down the drain By jfarrell

Down the drain

By jfarrell

 

What do you want me to say?

I tried to live my life your way.

Ignore the anger, forget the pain,

Get knocked down, just to get up again.

Aspire to conform,

Telling no-one where I’m from.

Fitting in, don’t stand out

Don’t give them anything to shout about.

I tell you, it’s insane,

As I watch my life slide down the drain.

 

I try so hard to keep it together,

Like my horses, closely tethered;

Pay my bills, go to work

I play blind, as you treat me like a jerk.

Cutting names and snide remarks,

The Wolf inside wants to bite, not bark;

My teeth want to tear and rip

The Wolf within wants, from your blood, to sip.

I tell you, it’s insane,

As I watch my life flow down the drain.

 

I know a peace waits for me;

The pain I feel… I will be free;

I know there is a place… where I really belong…

The journey there…. not overly long;

A nick here, a slash there…

Well… we all know life isn’t fair;

My blood pools around me like a flower,

Lying here in the shower.

I tell you, I’m not insane,

As I give my life to the drain.

Wake UP!

Wake Up! Wake UP! No more sleeping in bed
Little Peter is crying he needs to be fed

Angie is failing she can’t even read
This problem exists because she is poor- that’s what her teacher now believes

We are failing our children while we lie asleep
Our family structure is failing and is proven to be weak.

Wake Up! Wake Up! Mother while Peter is being raped
By the same man you love and claim it’s you that he dates

Wake! Wake Up! Dad your daughter is growing old
She needs a man in her life – so she sleeps with the addict who treats her cold…

Wake Up mom and dad no more thinking about you
But instead of our children whose thoughts are misconstrued

The alarm clock has gone off- No more sleeping in bed
Let’s save the children we have left
‘Cause half of our children are already dead.

Wake Up!!!!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Wake up is a powerful piece screaming the needs of some of our children. Wake up has been described as the perfect wake up call for those caring for children. It is a great gift for someone in the social services field; teachers or any persons providing the needs of our children

Running

Feet meet concrete
Gears turn clockwise
Thick wood blocks my path
Still I push on
Fallen tree after fallen tree
I duck dodge and jump
Tree after never ending tree
I am damaged by the falls
Finally there is a clearing
Feet meet silt
This sound more rapid and urgent
As I reach the clearing, I see something unnoticed before
A vast body sits before me
Further than my eyes can see
Still I must push on
Here the real journey begins
I swim; adrenaline pumping
Arms moving in rhythm with feet
Eventually I see it: A massive piece of land
Safety and happiness
I reach the land and stand up triumphant. Then dive right back in
I sink quickly to the bottom: a naive smile stuck to my cheeks
Into the abyss

HELP!

Savoir Save Me!
Please don’t let me fall
Any more
Broken, dying on the floor
Desperate
I need you God!
Falling
Keep me from killing myself!
Failing
It’s all my fault
Hopeless
Six years of death every day
Dying
My conscience is seared
Lying
Just to white wash my tomb
Apathy
I forget how to feel
Loneliness
Are you still here?
This is all my fault
I’m the only one to blame
How do I get back in your arms again?
How can I be strength to another
When I am so weak?
How can I hold someone up
When I’m sliding
NO MORE!
HELP ME GOD
THIS WASN’T WHAT YOU WANTED
I’M MADE FOR SO MUCH MORE
HELP ME
Please…
Help me…..
