Unfinished Symphony

My head is full of reasons

why I am worth nothing,

an excuse of a man who

sees his future is rotting.

I have thrown away any

hope of surviving this onslaught

because I was too worried

about what others thought.

Why did I not concentrate

on my own life,

instead my inaction

led to the loss of my wife.

The only person who

had ever believed in me

left when she knew my demons

would never let me be free.

Now they are all I have

to keep me company

like the broken notes of

an unfinished symphony.
