The Leap of the Faithless - Song

A Poem by Rogie-Dodge
"

A song about where I am now. A scary place.

"

I stand on the brink 
    At the edge of tomorrow, 
Staring into the abyss. 

The demons of yesterday 
    Are hot at my heels. 
How did it come to this? 

 

I close my eyes; 
    Take the leap of the faithless 
Into the uncertain arms of the night 

know that I 
    Am a long way from blameless 
But now I must do what is right 

 

I need time to think 
    Time to deal with my sorrow 
Deal with the things I have done 

But the dawn of the new day 
     Will starkly reveal 
Showing just what I've become. 

 

I close my eyes; 
    Take the leap of the faithless 
Into the uncertain arms of the night 

know that I 
    Am a long way from blameless 
But now I must do what is right 
 

How can I know? 
    How can I fake it? 
Where can I go? 
    How can I make it? 
The things I must say, 
    The things I must hide 
Show me the way, 
    Please be my guide 

As I close my eyes; 
    Take the leap of the faithless 
Into the uncertain arms of the night 

know that I 
    Am a long way from blameless 
Help me to do what is right 
 
Now I close my eyes; 
    Take the leap of the faithless 
Into the uncertain arms of the night 

know that I 
    Am a long way from blameless 
But now I must do what is right 
... what is right?

Ohhhhhh to the universe I have so much to say yet such little ability to express it.

Well.

I shall start with that this is so scarily close to my entire life experiences that I feel that it would be the ultimate resource for explaining what it is like to live my life.

I love the repetition!
I love the way you say:
"I close my eyes;
Take the leap of the faithless"
And:
"How can I know?
How can I fake it?
Where can I go?
How can I make it?
The things I must say,
The things I must hide
Show me the way,
Please be my guide
As I close my eyes; "

Absolutely no regrets with rating this 100/100!

I'm to be honest not quite sure what this makes me feel. It has a very nice use of repetition to drive your point home and shows a very clear struggle for narrator, It is very well written. but I cant quite seem to figure it out.
