Oblivion

The ones who really should will never quit
Writing unread till they are dead if not
Beyond (or maybe they already are
For all I know) rant on no matter what

Since they do I too sought to have my say
Hitching my wagon to a falling star
But now embarrassed to end up this way
A self-published self-starved none-of-a-kind

I finally have had enough of it

I wish I had the sense to walk away
Yet the delusion stays stuck in my mind
That maybe I could still make it somehow
And leave all this disappointment behind

But the hour grows late maybe too late now
As night falls hard time to call it a day
Or eyes-wide-shut-oblivious write on
The rest of my way to oblivion

You will make it, Steven!

I understand this totally, Stevie. Oddly, I also have a poem called "Oblivion." It is not currently posted. I also have one entitled, "Survival." I was quite sure I'd commented on one of yours with the same theme. Check it out if you have a moment please. Many will relate to the universal meaning you have shared here. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Regis

We all come to this cross roads from time to time my friend, but Steve you and I will write until our time on this short timespan of life comes to an end. That is our blessing and our curse. Pick the pen back up and do the job you know you must.

Don't quit my friend you are not dead
I assure you there are better days ahead.
Keep putting the pen to the paper and write
Your may help one person to see the light
and if that be true you have not failed at all
For one soul that is saved is a person who saw
the beautiful light, the colors of fall.

Don't give up.
Some writers never became famous until they were with God.
God Bless,
Lew Duffey
