In this depression

I feel nothing

Only numbness.

I feel lost!

I know not which way to turn-

I am left here,

Alone and abandoned.

I stumble and fall

For there is no light

To guide my way.

Some say there is light

At the end of the tunnel,

But I am not in a tunnel,

I’m in a pit of pain

And a very deep one.

There is only darkness above me.

Looking down,

The fog surrounds me

Do I stay;

Or should I try

And climb out?

But I don’t know what waits

For me on the outside-

It feels safe in here for now

Here in this womb.

But to stay too long

It would become a tomb

I must get out of here

Come and get me God please!
