Why do the knees get bloodied
By rubbing and rubbing off skin…
Pulling out hair and sundry,
When one wants to pack it in?
Some people cut themselves
While other just chew their nails…
What does one do to awake the senses
When feeling for life fails?
Some hide and nurse self-pity
While others in a crowd explode…
Bringing one’s self out of an abyss
Is really a very rough road!
