A Tortured Soul: No Rest No Peace

16 Nov


By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


In a state of denial

The focus is lost

A shattered being lost in time and space

Void of light and emotion

Motivational karma blocked by a powerful self denial

The feelings within fight for peace and stability

At any moment chaos threatens to erupt

Spewing forth confusion and self doubt


So many voices

So many lies

So many truths

Mind shutting down

Turning within itself

Body becomes weary

Outside reality becomes skewed suffering from neglect

Loved ones become enemies

Questions arise

No answer is found

Negativity eats away at the fabric of sanity

Hearts turn cold

Absent is emotion

Lost is the will to live

No rest

No peace

A tortured soul

    This is a true work. Has a real feel. Not like the uncensored crap I have been reading. I invite you to come take a look at my Webzine.

    I really like this, I think this is one of you best pieces. I just can’t explain how true this is. I really enjoyed that part where you say loved ones become enemies because that is so true. No matter how much it hurts to say, the ones you think are programmed to love you no matter what seems to be the first ones to turn their backs and stab you in yours. Good work my friend, extremely good!

    This speaks truth! It describes a situtation that the majority of us face at some point in life.
