Who Will I Turn to Now?

Another door slams in my face

My life stripped bare of light

Living out of this suitcase

Whose floor will host me tonight?

No acceptance, pure exclusion

Worthlessness, complete occlusion

Patronised, a figure of mirth

Only I can save myself

A life’s work now irrelevant

A burden to my health

As soon as you leave a normal way to be

Your friends disown and the state disavows

Who will I turn to now?

After years of giving

I stepped out of your club

Alive but not living

Can it really be my time is up?

Slipping towards the saddest of thoughts

To say to my loved ones

“I’m sorry, so sorry to have left you…

…but I’m glad that I’ve gone”

As soon as you leave a normal way to be

Your friends disown and the state disavows

Who will I turn to now?

No more fare thee well

Burdens one and all

Joined in isolation

Together we fall

As soon as you leave a normal way to be

Your friends disown and the state disavows

Who will I turn to now?
