survivor road

i stand at the cliff of forever
looking over the edge
and the drop before me
into the ether of nothingness

time has rushed thru its portal
leaving me winded
exhaustion weighs heavy
and my muscles grow weak

the brand of all my yesterdays
still burns with the heat
of its impression
rendering its imortal scar
on my soul

i look toward tomorrow
and see the emptiness
of sorrow and regret
looming like a rapter
before its kill

fear boils within me
and i am left wondering
if i have the strength
the resolve
the courage
to face another year

or should i add myself
to the countless others
who have stepped
or been thrown
off the cliff of forever
