The Last Step

The Last Step

Last word
With those who judge
Who make a mockery
Of emotions, thoughts that lay bare
To them

Last sleep
Of perturbed thoughts
And failed decisions
To taste the sweet success of dreams
Now distant.

Last smile
Of happiness
Fake to its very core
Shadowing tears of solitude
Torn hearts.

Last step
To exit from
A life of truth and lies
Amusing other self except
Your own.

First step
To leap into
An existence of your
Very own confident free self
Long lost.
