    can i come to you?
    i mean with all my s...
    when i'm drinking in the am
    can i come to you because i am lost
    and will you know i don't need the preach
    can i come to you?
    i mean when i have screwed it all up
    and the unnecessary is suddenly necessary
    when it could have been prevented
    will you know i don't need the teach
    you see i'm spinning out of control
    but i know where i'm going
    my vision is blurry and i see
    destination passing me by
    dejavu laughing at me
    i've been here before
    but this time is different
    the door i face is out not in
    and i need you to anchor my fall
    and that is all
    can i...

    yes you can!

    I know how it feels to screw up bad and you don't need anymore guilt than what you already feel. Go on with yo bad self. I be feeling this poem for real. Gone through this kind of transition,but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Too deep,man,you killing us out here!
    Sincerely,
    Desert Storm

    Peace

    you can if....

    you can if you but realize
    you are the shoulder which you need to cry
    you are the kleenex that will dry your eye
    you are the words which sometimes chastise
    you are the unwise becoming wise
    you are the sign
    you are the times
    you are the mind the body the soul
    you are the whole................YOU ARE
    didn't ya know?
