“Survival Of The Soul”

As I walk along the broken road
there are pitfalls,
too many to mention,

to wide to walk around
or step over,
so I fall in.

Spiraling down the very depths
of my nightmare,
I see brimstone.

It hurts for the love once lived,
hungering for passion
that is humanity.

Before I hit bottom in my ascension,
a tornado of emotion
wakes me up.

I spiral upward on a humane wind
one of intimate mercy.
I drag myself up.

Like a dying man in the desert
to an oasis in my soul,
I gasp for air,

touch the face of our God,
as my parched lips
speak the words. . . . .

"I am a free man on a broken road
it didn't defeat me
I defeated it."

Timothy Michael DiVito c2021
