Creative Talents Unleashed

Guilt floods the psyche

Levees bursting from the pier pressure

Filth stares thru the outer guard pushing upward

Casted away undesirable and worthless

Acquaintances have left- succumbed

to the foulness that covers and consumes

Companions converge to converse in negative

conversation and pick thru the scraps of

Recapturing not what was lost

But redeeming each moment with promise

Hoping never to succumb to the voices of


Recover and be whole once more
