Helter Skelter

Climb the steps, one by one

Feel the breeze refresh me

Hands can nearly touch the sun

Golden rays drip down around me 


Love and splendour encases my heart

With the world shining out all its glory

A brand new day, a glimmering start

New beginnings, new days, new story


Top of the slide, secure on the mat

Fluttering lungs fill up with excitement

The world whizzes by with a song in my heart

Slipping forward towards my contentment


Faster I go, slithering side to side

I struggle to grasp a breath

Plummeting down on this endless ride

Catching up with shame and regret


Down and down the light disappears

And darkness consumes every turn

Losing sense of myself and fuelled by fear

My insides begin to churn


No life and no love, no heart and no soul

Confusion, despair and resentment

The mat slips away as I lose control

The metal fulfils it’s defilement. 


Further down I go, to torturous pain

To ignorance, to loss, to desperation. 

The blackness of the night cuts through me again.

Beyond hope , beyond love, beyond rejection 


The descent abates as the end draws in

Left unwanted, broken and apart

Needing life, needing love, needing somewhere to begin

Like an ending that needs a start


Through floundering thoughts, gasping for air

A moment of clarity shines

Your angelic voice rings through my despair

One word. One beautiful word. ‘Climb’
