Wild Man Boy

I wrote this poem for a friend going through a hard time.....


Wishing things were different
hoping things will change
walls of regret and disappointment
an invisible self made cage

Perceived thoughts of lack of choice
Put you there, my friend
When exactly did it happen
the point where you just gave in?

Your soul searing eyes
can’t see mistress Addiction
smothering you with illusionary comfort
while hope slowly seeps from within

Lie down in night’s warm embrace
with the moon and the stars up there in space
Nocturnal lullabies will ease your pace
thoughts of a better life, your saving grace

Life is now, don’t wait for it to begin
Each new day good things happen
Scooby scooby doo, where are you
No one hurts you, like you do
