Can you lable what I have become?
I am everything you know shouldn’t be
Watch me, as I slip further
Can you see the emptiness ahead?
If your rope could reach me, would you pull me in?
Observe me in this ocean of despair
Am I a waste of flesh and bone?
An existence of suffering is not a life
I am but Dead wood drifting away
Falling further behind the pack
This runner is out of the race
Don’t look back as I fade away.. A loser from the start
To push on through this purgatory
Leave this pain and emptiness
Onwards,Â the other side of mystery and uncertainty awaits
Fear and anxiety won’t alter my course
As nothing unknown could ever compare to the futilityÂ and shame
Of what I see in the mirror everyday
