An Empty Balcony

“An Empty Balcony”

For my entire life,
I’ve been beaten.
Bludgeoned so many times before.
My spine shattered as fractured ribs punctured my lungs.
And I just do not want to do it anymore.

And I realize that every single person close to me,
Would advise me not to see it that way.
Another doorway another chance.
The sun always rises far passed today.

I fall, I crash, I get up.
It is nothing new.
Still I should hope,
I should listen to you.

Well allow the pain,
To well up in you.
And then walk out on an empty balcony,
That’s what I do.
