Lifeline

My friend
My inner voice
My conscience guider
I meander through life
A nonstop wanderer
Tripping and stumbling
Over and over
Never wanting to hear
All is not quite as it may appear
My saviour
My listening post
My worthy adviser
I continue on this path
Trying to hold onto power
Tempting and justifying
Over and over
Never wanting to think
All is pouring over the brink
My rescuer
My ever-there lifeline
My devil’s advocate
I carry on regardless
In an unconscious drowsy state
Lusting and loosening
Over and over
Never wanting to sin
Avoiding what is about to begin
My listener
My court judge
My cold glass of water
I still make my own way
Knowing how conflicting my thoughts are
Hoping and praying
Over and over
Never wanting to talk
Realising I’m on dead man’s walk
My strength
My support structure
My check of the reality
I do hear you deep in my soul
Your advice presents painful clarity
Revolving and reaching
Over and over
Never wanting to let go
But you’re right I know it has to be so.
