    Cliff

    I made my mind up today
    This feeling I have is no more
    For this feeling will die today
    The feeling of being depressed
    Being upset hurt and empty
    I will no longer have this feeling
    Today as I get into my truck
    Start driving away with no thought
    No thought but only this
    As I leave all my life and past behind
    As I drive along this road of mine
    Not taking that moment to look behind
    Leaving those who love and care for I
    I will not think of them as I drive
    For this feeling will die today
    As I drive finding that perfect cliff
    Or will I find that perfect tree
    The tree that will meet me around the corner
    As I drive picking up speed
    Looking ahead, looking into space
    With only that one thought in my mind
    The thought of losing this feeling I have
    The thought of me killing this feeling
    As I pick more speed up I found that perfect thing
    For it was not that tree around the corner
    It was the cliff that found me today
    The more speed I pick up
    The more and more I feel free
    Free of this feeling that kills me
    Here I go I am going for it
    With no thought of yesterday or tomorrow
    Only the thought of today to kill this thought
    I reach the speed I love to feel
    As I crash pass the rail and over the cliff
    It seems like I am going in slow motion
    For it is to late to change my mind
    For I could not change this feeling of mine
    I set back, do I close my eyes or do I watch
    As I see the ground coming my way
    Closer and closer it gets before it is over
    Still I have no thought of nothing
    Only the thought that put me here today
    For I now lie at the bottom of the cliff
    With the sound of broken glass
    The feeling of all my bones braking
    It all compacts into one with a boom
    As the truck now is on fire
    As I lie there helpless not wanting help
    I smell my flesh, as it burns black
    As the heat finds it way deep inside my body
    Soon it will hit my bones
    Soon there will me nothing left of me
    But I didn’t feel anything at all
    For I was dead as soon as I hit
    Here lays my body inside this truck
    At the bottom of this cliff
    As my soul flies free
    Will I be found any time soon
    Or will this be my grave forever
    As I lay here at the bottom
    The bottom of this cliff

    This was well written and I was driving right next to you as you sped towards the relief the driver sought. Very well done.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.
