Gray Day With Blues – April 1968

Gray Day With Blues
by Debbie Rapp, age 15

As I walk down this path,
I don't know whether to cry or laugh,
As this long day,
slowly passes away,
The sun goes down,
darkness falls all around,
The rain comes on,
and I sing a song,
The clouds are grey,
and they won't go away,
Everything is in 'Gloom',
and my world went 'Boom',
The ground is all wet,
and I regret,
That the ground is giving away,
it won't last another day,
It seems to be getting worse,
OH! it really hurts,
The ground is falling through,
what should I do?
I have nothing to stand on,
my whole world is gone,
I reach out, but nothing is there,
NOTHING IS THERE! - just thin air,
There is nothing to hold on to,
what'll I do? WHAT'LL I DO?
I am mercilessly falling,
I am painfully calling,
There is no reply,
oh my! OH MY!!
Nothing I can reach for,
no use to live anymore,
What am I saying?,
what is this game I am playing?
There is no life for me,
so I ought not be,
What's this, I have stopped,
I am no longer falling,
I am suspended in mid-air,
and I can't seem to get anywhere,
I am so mixed up,
and I can't stop,
I seem to be going round and round,
there is no up, there is no down,
What's this world coming to?
You ask me, I'll ask you.

I will be posting my poetry from over 50 years ago, for an insight into a ‘Mind of the Time’. I needed to get it out there, so bear with me, I believe that these poems display some of the ‘Last Vestiges of Innocence’.

I hope you join me on my journey, as I recount many things from my past,               and explore the many other creative possibilities in my future. – OmaEagle

A Throwback to My past… Ah, My Past… Some called it… ‘Hippy’
others still call me the Original ‘Flower’ or ‘Earth’ Child.
