Nothing I Do Saves Me Now

NOTHING I DO SAVES ME NOW

Nothing I do saves me now
I have gone to the other side-
Lost and struggling
I try to find a way back
To faith in myself.

I seem unable to do anything
In so many ways.

This poem too is part of the struggle
As if poetry, or rather the effort at poetry
Is all I have left.

Writing these lines down now
Helps me somewhat.

Perhaps I will get out of this somehow
Though I do not feel that now.
