Red Inking While Red Lining

Red Ink on the red line i am on this train to a land i may not return. My day is trumped with hit after hit on my confidence. I keep getting shot down when I attempt to grasp on to my dreams. I need a job but i keep getting laid off. So now I'm feeling like I should jump in front of this train to end this pain that I'm feeling but instead I use this red pen and ink my salvation instead of giving in to this thought of everything being at it's end. So I'm " RED INKING ON THE RED LINE. "

Red Ink

  • I got to red ink this. My thoughts of a broken surgically repaired man.
  • The turn out hasn't been,
  • Bionic like Steve Austin.
  • Appreciation for this physical shell, having first hand knowledge of losing bits and pieces of me. Lost the ability,
  • To take a good hit.
  • I'm damaged not broken mentally or spiritually, but I've come close to it.
  • The mind is powerful able to travel beyond what we see.
  • Hypnosis or simply while one is asleep.
  • Sometimes I want to stay in the mode of sleep.
  • cause when I awaken,
  • To the paths I've taken.
  • Where potential is achin'
  • Or lost.
  • Ambition is years from what I can remember.
  • Still paying the cost.
  • Still when I've lost or I feel lost I get inspired by struggles I've surrendered and others have overcome.
  • I've succumbed to struggles that have created a desire to warn.
  • But who can I warn?
  • Accept those who still have a chance to fight or run.
  • Decisions early at the beginning, baby hair fine.
  • Concerning the time.
  • Molds a better vision for baby hair fine maturing to full growth now is thinning,
  • Elderly and wise.
  • My warning:
  • Of self doubt prevailing.
  • Welcoming the demise.
  • My warning:
  • Of self-esteem fleeing like a breath exhaling.
  • The state of our minds will be the reason one is excelling.
  • Also the reason some are dwelling,
  • In depths of misery wishing to be forgotten.
  • Where the mind is rotting,
  • Or rotten.
  • Pleasure not even a thought.
  • Joy has gotten to be too painful to think of.
  • This is my warning when one is on the brink of.
  • Giving into that edge.
  • Let positive words of wisdom be the wedge,
  • keeping doors open and opportunities in our lives become full fledged.
  • Take a pledge,
  • take an oath
  • To stay positive and allow those thoughts to provoke.
  • The change and spark the hope,
  • that saves us from the end of the rope,
  • or the fall from the ledge.
  • Suicide is not the answer.
  • Self-esteem can be reclaimed.
  • Your soul can be redeemed.
  • This is a message from my suicidal brain.
  • Writing has become the reason I persist.
  • The reason why.
  • I
  • Still exist!

Red Inking on Red Line

  • Red inking while red lining,

  • Filtering and refining,

  • My thoughts are inclining

  • Toward isolating on an island

  • That is sinking.

  • My own thinking!

  • Saying " give up "

  • Look at that rope.

  • I need to write.

  • My mind replies, " Please Don't! "

  • Inking my salvation.

  • Printing true evaluations,

  • Of how senseless

  • No matter how relentless.

  • These attacks

  • My pen is my weapon to combat.

  • Filtering my comeback.

  • Strategies revealing my true path.

  • Creating a new laugh.

  • As I see the new graph.

  • Illustrations of my peaks and valleys.

  • Like a computer scanning.

  • Alt-ctrl-del

  • Click- end task or end process.

  • Shutdown and restart

  • My writing is my minds task manager

  • Keeping my performance in check.
  • Striving to live my days with no regret.
