Life should be a blessing, though to some it’s a curse
you’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.
How can you continue, to prosper and grow
when living just simply excites you no more?
Whole lists of achievements, and trophies to show
acquaintances feigning to feel what you know.
In a lonely dark place, where the shuttles don’t run
I hear lots of voices, yet faces see none.
Their words are just whispers, though, I hear them well
extended vacation, all paid for, in hell.
It hurts to admit, that I’m tempted at times
by voices with lives not too different from mine.
My mind has been poisoned, the heart will soon follow
any light that was left will too fade, as I wallow.
Awaiting the outcome, reserved to the fate
the voices are calling, no longer they wait…
