Turn Out The Light

Turn out the light

I think I’m finished

I’ve had enough and

now my spirit is diminished.

I’m tired of trying

to figure it all out

when I’m full of

insecurity and doubt.

My life has been taken

and pulled apart

leaving in pieces any

possibility of a new start.

My dreams have

been shredded and

any hope has gone

now I’m just waiting

for the worse to come along.

Turn out the light

I don’t want to see anymore,

I don’t need to know

what’s coming next to my door.

  1. Strange but 50 for me was a very defining stage, a point where I determined that I needed to live a very different life. That was about the time that I started writing which gave me hope and inspiration and led to a wonderful friendship and marriage 🙂 Look on the bright side, we never know what might happen next 🙂 🙂
