What’s my worth friend

What’s my worth friend

A Chapter by J. Viands

Well I don’t know you from a hole in the ground

You don’t know me

Isn’t it all the same some how

Take my words for what they’re worth


You’re fooling yourself again

So let yourself waste away

You’re lying to yourself friend


I can smell the stench of death on your breath

I know you haven’t had enough yet

When you have I’m sure the world would like to have you back

I’ll pick you up and dust you off if you’d like


You must know though I can’t save your life

On the other hand I can help you with your strife

So let lie the demons in your sight

Let me hold on to your sins


You got to let yourself live again

Take my words for what they’re worth friend

Awesome write! Learning that we may be able to help, but cannot save another is a big lesson life teaches us! Like the words you used to convey this poem.
