Silence


No more screaming

Not even a whimper of agony

Silent now

Soul crushed in defeat

No fight left

Broken and shattered

Just watching the clock run out

Head down

Praying for the end that never comes

Bills overwhelming

Depression unrelenting

Ship slowly sinking

Insanity

Profanity

A failure at everything

Robbing Peter to pay Paul just to keep the lights from being turned off

Car

Gas

Electric

Diapers

Food

Etc

May need to panhandle just to pay the child support

Slowly slipping under the waves

Yet the mailman just smiles and waves

Stuffing the mailbox

Showing no remorse

Somehow someway I missed the American dream

I slipped through the cracks

Now with nowhere to turn

Silently I pray for a miracle

But deep down knowing It will never come…
