A Better Place
A Story Poem by Jim Nasium

I'm so tired of this game
every day is the same
there's nothing new any more
I sit here and think
and yes I drink
till I pass out face down on the floor

things are getting worse
soon I'll need a nurse
I'm stuck in a very tight spot
then you asked was I healed
was the truth revealed
and I asked you healed of what???

a bad drug addiction
stranger than fiction
a cold black broken heart
my lips are sealed
but if I was healed
why's my world falling apart?

I'm so confused
and I got the blues
don't know what I'm gone'a do
so I sit here and wait
as I hesitate
to accept my time is through...

one day soon I know
I'll go with the flow
and move on to another time and place
and I'm ready to go
I can face Him I KNOW
because I feel no guilt or disgrace...

and when I'm set free
please remember me
for trying to be a good man
who was misunderstood
yet did all he could
just to try to understand

life is not fair
but what do I care
my life is coming to an end
and soon I know
it'll be time to go
to a better place, my friend...
