The Next Step
The end is never the end and steps become stages.
Neuro-transmissions engineered at birth are
erroneous pathways deepened over time.
Retrain the brain they say, neuroplasticity
a new age of hope, but pathways are abyssal
and unscalable, and time is running out..
And what is life's purpose
When your deepest chasm is fear?
Therapy teaches to live in the moment
Experience keeps me seeking atonement
Those places to go to for calming the mind
Are fleeting, elusive and redundantly non effective,
Losing their ability to heal, so few to rely on!
Like a tiny window in a prison cell,
Only a little light is let in but not too often, transient,
Crossing your face for a moment but then gone.
More so a reminder
Of what might have been
Or may never be.
Mountains can't be climbed with moments.
Dreams dissolve quickly upon waking,
The harder you try to hold them
The quicker they are gone.
I wonder if they are real at all.
Small victories in a multi-faceted war
Do not define sobriety.
More demons to conquer
The worst for last perhaps unbeatable.
