#70 of 365 – “out of insanity”

“out of insanity”


rock bottom

doesn’t come easy

and leaves people

damaged in its wake


bringing down

the resistance and anger

that otherwise

is hard to break


rock bottom

comes with dirty hands

and words mangled up

by lies


and the sweet promise

of tomorrow


by moral compromise


I don’t know where

my rock bottom is

but I hope

I meet it soon


because the only door

out of insanity

is at the far end

of rock bottom’s room
