Life Screams Silently

Life Screams Silently

A Poem by Mark Witterick

Home.

I sat there once.
Family all around: my own.

But the clocks click
The cuckoos call.
Illusions fade away.
Reality doth make itself known.

The sun rises and my resolve sets.
For today is the day.
Yet.
That is what I always say,
Why should today be different?

My mind restricts me
My fears alight. Freedom is calling 
As it takes away: the night.

Enveloped I stay
None call my name. 
No one would search,
None would attend my church.

I inhale deeply lean a little to the front. 
The depths are calling me.
The breeze does whisper softly.
It's time.
Take the plunge!
