I AM OKAY. This just came to me, and so, I write...

I walk underneath a bitter sky
In this, my Land of Despair,
Wearing a cloak of sadness
With a load that's too heavy to bear.
I am all alone on silver streets
In this, my Land of Despair,
Tears are freezing on my face
I wonder if God still answers prayers.
In the distance is a lonely bridge
In this, my Land of Despair,
It asks me to be its friend
Because it's the only thing that cares.
I stand upon the slippery edge
In this, my Land of Despair,
Will I take that final step
Or will they find me still standing there?
(C) Copy written, 10 December, 2004, by Karla Dorman.

This reminds me of the story I saw on television about the cop yesterday that kept a woman from jumping off the bridge. Sometimes life does seem to get you down but we bounce back.

You have touched a very deep emotion with this write. Glad your okay. I think it is good when we allow our thoughts to drift into all possiblilite and then write about it. You don't have to jump to have an idea what it would feel like. Great write.
