surrender

By , Bolingbrook, IL
I

used to feel pain

to find a gain

of control

to take a toll

on myself for what i deserved

i
FOUND

that there was no hope

for those who couldn’t cope

with the feel on the inside

so i went for a ride
IT

was a little nag

at first

but turned into a game of tag

when i couldn’t give it up
IN

the end i thought it was my only friend
the only one to really mend

the hole that was eating me alive
MY

dirty little secret

was what it became

it was impossible to tame

so i embraced every hurt
“SURRENDER.”

is what they all said

but i put all thoughts to bed

and only saw red

covering my skin
HOPE

was the last thing i had

and it was really sad

to think my life would only amount to this
“IS


there any escape?” i begged

i had to find an end

to this madness that consumed me
THERE

was an answer

but it felt like a cancer

and i couldn’t give in


He came in the night

i couldn’t put up a fight

because of the glory He possessed



there is no other way

because he had already paid

the ultimate price
