To Who Do You?
To who do you turn to
When the pain gets to much?
When nothing is working
Do you look for a crutch
Do you turn to the drink and illegal drugs?
When you know in your heart
That road is for mugs
Who do you turn to?
To whom do you speak?
When those that are close
Seem so troubled and weak
Who do you turn to
When enough is enough?
For you can't see the smooth
As the rough is to rough
If you are of the faith
Then the answer is clear
But what if you're not
Will it all disappear?
To who do you turn to
When your options run out?
to who,what and where?
When there's no one about.

I certainly hope this not your last post.  As someone "not of the faith", and when things start getting a tad rough upstairs,

I have no one to turn to except my brutally honest gemini common sense.  A couple of slaps to the head and I'm good to go.

You raised your questions well.  Nice job  noah

You come to me..says she.

She smiles, and says everything be ok..and for a minute you say ok.

Don't let pain take over, let it blow over.

Good write Graham. Hopefully time will tell for this troubled soul.

Coming on here, and writing poetry is a good outlet. Look at my pain has been shown in them. I am now seeing the light, and move on from that pain to a light of fun and freedom.

A very interesting poem that does clutch ones heart when you read...

WE all have been there one time or another..

 I really belive there is one who will listen if we just talk to him in prayer...

 God is always with us ...just believe he is with you always...

Close your eyes and ask for him to give you strength...

Your heavy coat of misery can be taken off.

well now you caught my whom do you turn to when pain gets too much??  the universal question/// I hate it that I don't have the answer  but I feel your pain!!.  are poets doomed to figure it out on their own? shiiiishhhh! I hate  that...don't we all need help??  I know I do.  great piece!  you struck a chord!!  ...and are poets the only ones with feelings that can relate to one another??  I don't want to look to a crutch, do you??

I enjoyed your poem and the questions you pose.

I guess each individual has to answer it for themselves.
