to whom it may concern

you have been where I once was and
where I could easily go again.
you have trodden those murky paths,
you know the aftermath,
you know the consequence of
the actions thereof. you know the pain.
my tears don't seem to be enough to
calm my state of mind.
the agony I feel deep within
shies before a demonic grin.
reassure me, I plead.
I need. I need. help me find
the place where I can go to receive the
peace that I desperately seek.
I only ask what you'll freely give
to help me live.
show me what can come
if I don't succumb like the weak.
