A Task to fulfill in this world
Some people have it
Some people no longer have it
Others throw it away

But I...
I'm barely hanging on
Heart in a bottomless pit
Soul surrounded by darkness
A question...
What is my mission to fulfill?
Why am i here?
Answers are within my reach
But I'm afraid to grasp it
For i would fall
Into that deep
Bottomless pit
Of Nothingness...
Hanging on by a thread
It's easier to give in
Surrender to the darkness
But no...
I gotta keep fighting
To prove there's something more
Than just a shell
