Breaking Point

I am losing control of myself
No longer do I have a grip
A once steady course set upon
Seems to have given me the slip

So often I used to turn to myself
My thoughts, spilled out into words
Now finding it difficult to say what I mean
Having difficulty being heard

Perhaps it has come to a point
A climax so to speak
Or a fork in the road
The top of a mountain – it’s peak.

Honest with myself
It’s about time
A scary thought
To see into my mind.

Admit the truth of my breaking point
How close I came to the edge
Only to have some unlikely soul push me back
And force me to honor a pledge

That fresh start gave me new life
Renewed strength to carry on
I will take that new beginning
To bring my Self back as I know it’s not all gone
