The Eclectic Pen - When?

By: Jessica B. (jebers)  
Date Submitted: 11/13/2008
Genre: Literature & Fiction » Poetry
Words: 70

  My body is tired
My soul uncertain
My mind is uninspired
What waits beyond the curtain?

I want to be brave
To feel complete
No longer a slave
Is that too great a feat?

My eyes are leery
My hands shaking
My fingers are weary
Is this inspiration in the making?

I am running out of time
And have much to say
With a mountain to climb
Will someone show me the way?

The moment is coming
Darkness is near
I am succumbing
Tonight, I swallow my fear.
