Title:  What direction is the right direction

What direction is the right direction


Sinking, sinking, sinking,

Deeper and desperate the more I'm thinking,

As the time is ticking away,

The more I become astray.


As my vision becomes blurry,

The more I start to worry,

I can only see black,

With the purpose I lack.


With no up or down,

And less and less hope, I frown,

Am I moving in the right direction,

Do I need to make a correction?


I ask 'why me',

And the voices reply 'it was meant to be'.

Are the voices in my head,

Or were they really said.


I feel so lost and confused,

As my blood oozed,

Through my cooling heart,

Is this the end or start.


With no sense of time,

I'm stuck in a mime,

With only the voices,

Who are watching my choices.


The longer I stay,

I have less chance to play,

The game of life,

Because I'm handed a knife.
