I’m sitting in limbo,
Patiently waiting for the storm to pass overhead
So I can breathe once again

They are waging a war
Never ending and undefeatable
Even with this knowledge I want it to end

It’s a constant struggle
Both with balanced power and determination
And victory in their spirit

I stand there silently
Like an innocent bystander
A butterfly amidst the flames

I cannot stop it
Their savage attitudes
And scornful stares

So I’ll wait here tolerantly
Allowing my mind to deteriorate
Falling into the pit of my despair.
