The Bottom Of Every Low

Updated on June 27, 2014

I have been to the bottom,

very bottom of every low.


I've seen the pattern of every shoe

and felt the force of every blow.


Just a stones throw from hell,

well past a mile into exile and

around the corner from skid row.


I have been to the bottom,

very bottom of every low.


Though it seems like I've failed,

there's one thing that I know.


While I lost sight of what was right,

I found plenty of room to grow.

      I read this twice, the 2nd time out loud...The visual descriptors are raw, real, and relevant...Looking at that shoe sole from the bottom up is a disturbing vision that evokes not a little anger and indignation...

      Voted up and awesome...Larry
