Frozen in Time


United Kingdom
53° 43' 8.5008" N, 2° 4' 22.0224" W

Tried to run away in my teens and 20's,

Found myself in a maze,


Often at the beginning again. 


This journey I've been on had huge mountains,

Became very tiring,


Often leading to a dead end. 


The harder and deeper I pushed,

The more traumatised I became.

I now know what it feels like to be a hamster on a wheel,

Or a proud lion in the zoo.


Groundhog day,

Has been my familiar friend,

Coupled with years,

Heartache and misery.


What am I to do,

To let go,

This deep melancholy,

A gun, a rope, or a high rise too?


Thoughts of exiting,

Very tantalising

Yet am all too aware of

The catastrophic effects too.


I'm at half way point,

Life's journey

Yet feel there's so much

I need to do.


Please help me

Because resourcefully,

Tried too much,

Emotionally and physically spent.
