Did you ever look
Into an addict's eyes
And see the reflection
Of your own ghost

All your judgment
All your abuse
Dangling there
A noose
Around your own throat

Deeper than human despair
The soul gone missing
Into thin air
Did your spirit ever grow tired
  Of existing here...

Did you ever wonder
If there was anything left
Did you ever catch
Your last breath?
Traveler Tim re to 2019
Many years ago there was a time
When I was so tired of life that I prayed for non-existence.
I feel so alive now that I've caught my second breath, I don't suspect there is another breath left, of precious life.
