Where do you go 
when all hell breaks loose?
Who do you meet
at the end of your tunnel?
Take a deep breath,
slow down your mind.
Be still and silent,
everything's fine.

What are you doing?
What's there to gain?
By beating that soul of yours
silly forever?
Stop it, you know
it's really not worth it.
Whatever will happen, 
will happen.

Cry if it helps,
but don't you worry.
With time and distractions,
these feelings will vanish.

When all is done,
and all has been said...
the only one left is yourself.

Carmen Colombo
December 1981
