Life’s Limbo

 

I’m not scared to die, I’m scared to live

A jump to the unknown, is a step to the abyss

We get down each day, when Shit stays the same 

depression creeps in but we take comfort in the mundane

A 9-5 living,

Is a soul and body imprisoned

I guess I’m just on a mission

To find a vision

So pray for me

And I’ll pray for you

I’ll take your hand through the smog 

to a clearer view

    The mundane of life clogging out ways and expressed so clearly Jack - - an engaging read and one to which I relate.

      Thank you for replying!
      This was my first and very novice attempt at trying to write something people may be able to relate to. Thankyou for taking time to comment!

      I guess it could make you depressed when things stay the same. But I also guess there are people who have such a bad hand in life that they too get depressed. I Can relate to the line a soul and body imprisoned but I sometimes think there are much harsher things that can make people feel like this. Even so I like the way you have ended this poem with the line'' I will take your hand''
