Fear and doubt pounds my chest.
Depression claws away at me.
I wonder to myself in the crippling silence of night,
How much longer will I exsist?

Desperation floods my voice,
The tears becken to me,
To escape, silencing them,
But they fight.
I can feel them tearing me apart inside.
I shut my mouth tight; No I will not let them win.

Selfishness and despair rape me raw.
They mock me in their coldness.
The way they taunt me,
The way they touch me,
scares me.

Rage fills me eyes
And the ravenous tears escape.
They coat my face,
Dismenishing my spirits,
Burying me beneath the sheltered grounds.

Fear and doubt pounds my chest.
Depression claws away at me.
I wonder to myself in the crippling silence of night,
How much longer will I exsist?
