Yes......This is the end



YES.......THIS IS THE END

   This fear of Death,  huh!  leaves nothing new to see
no sense of loss, nor mystery
for He stalks this mind repeatedly
and now demands a finale of me
    Prepared for doom, damned by despair
ignorant of wrong or right, my mind's impaired
one path ahead radiates so clear
shall I follow, should I volunteer
    the peace I need appears so near
my spirit's weak and head unclear
depressing thoughts are always clouded
packed with sound reason, alas unfounded
    I have no haven when demoralised
so bubble over trouble, pour out these eyes
and wrestle hopelessly inside this Dark
seeking solace for my black, black heart
    now I'm slipping slowly into a foggy sleep
and nestle down into my bloodied sheets
this growing red pool becomes a best ever friend
so I will now write,          YES.......THIS IS THE END
