Just A Thought

These haunted dreams which I hold dear

are ghosts within my mind

Reminding me of better days

in another place and time


I can't escape the tortured past

with all these vivid thoughts

And everything explodes inside

from all the pain it's wrought


I've tried to leave them in the past

but failed another try

So I embrace the hurt and pain

with tears I hate to cry


I've asked the Lord to take my life

but still I roam these halls

A shell of who I use to be

these memories on the wall


So all that I look forward to

is finally being free

To take my final breath I feel

that's all that's left for me

            Yes, embrace the hurt, pain and depression. Recognize these, feel them and allow them to pass through. Then do something positive and enhancing. Nicely done.
