O Lord

you people my thoughts
night and day and
just when a bit of hope
and light were opening
their buds
you chopped
heart and mind
tussle so
why give
a heart full of emotional
ebb and flow
would I but carry
a stone for a heart
then nothing
would’ve mattered
nary a jot
my eyes
no longer get misty
they are bone dry
have proclivities
for neither whiskey
nor rye, bile too
I shall not swallow
will not wallow
either, I’ll have
you know
you said leave
everything to me
and I’ve done
just that- make me
sink swim drown, I care not
have been ready
will never back down
come on your high
horse, slow and steady
I’ve washed
my hands of this life
am so ready!
