by Victor J. Carroll

In touch with the realities of life
weighing my options
living on the edge
crossing the danger zone
transfixed in deep emotional deprivation.

Caught up in chaos leading me to insanity,
entrapped in fear of failure
battling my temptations
Lost to confusion
Lost to love
Lost to the ways of my heritage
Lost in a congregation of non-believers
Fighting my way back to existing in a
world of oppression, hatred,war and
inhumanity towards mankind.

Seeking the solace to the reasons why
seeking a peace of mind
freeing my mind of conformity
filling my inner sanctum with the
love of Christ
Obliterating the mask that hides my
Facing the world unafraid.
