When things go wrong - a poem


When things go wrong

When things go wrong
what to do?

Wrapped in a cloud
of sadness and despair

Fog so thick
to see is nil

Hunkered down and
waiting for that beam of light

Deep, dark shadows
run across the mind

Jettisoned by sad thoughts
too tough to share

Look to the mirrors of consciousness;
the fun house of reflections

Distorted by pain
so real, yet so ephemeral

Think through the halls of the psyche
a labyrinth

How long does time pass
before peace seeps in?
