Can’t shake this feeling That it’s not the same Infected sickness Covered with dull pain A rabid werewolf I’m trying to tame Almost off the leash I tug at the reigns Hold on with sheer will Have nothing to gain
My efforts; A joke Fighting a freight train Through grit teeth I smile Demeanor I feign Failure coming soon My life, one more stain
Lost sight of it all To what it pertains I am sinking down Spinning in the drain An endless battle Forever the bane Of my existence
No longer I’m sane………

Life and death... The endless cycle This is what we both fear and love, It's pain that brought you future pleasure And it's pleasure which brought you future pain, Don't run from yourself when push comes to shove, Here I am, still before you. All washes away with rain. Nature shall be the universal anointment upon your head, It will become your honest everlasting saviour, It will make certain that you in spirit live forever after Once you overcome fate, entombed by your fears no more.
