A Midnight Tale

A genuine tale from the raw within of a story teller. Enjoy.


Tears in my eyes, it disturbs me,

pathetic in a situation as it obscures me,

where do I find the power to go within,

exhausted in endeavor to stay unseen;

Awareness of capacity caused me to despair mediocrity,

struggling to break free is causing me to stay weak,

been long lost in battles and oblivious to life cues,

tears in my eyes, it really disturbs me;

I will exist no more, going down the lane of this obscurity,

hoping to find clues, I decide to seek clarity,

the clue lies in the wounding, I resolve to create energy,

The desire for capacity predisposes to alacrity.
