Life Cries Out

She sits and stares at the emptiness of her life
Drowning in self pity and self absorption
Unaware that just beyond the porch,
Only feet from her blind anger
Life dances and celebrates in the dust
Kicks cans and shouts "huzzah!"
As the world continues to send invitations
Slipped through the mail slot
Laying on the floor of her depression
Invitations that beg her to come outside
Leave the emptiness for even just a moment
And take a wary step into life.
