Walking On Thin Ice

Walking on thin ice.
Handling a heavy weight on your back.
Being pushed too far.
You’re standing still trying not to move.
Cause one false move you could end up in cold water.
What should you or I do now?
We can't stay in this one spot forever.
Is there someone who can help me?
The temperature is dropping and I can't feel my body.
But there you go again coming at me with your words.
The ice is about to break... So please shut the f*** up.
But you keep attacking me over and over again.
Now the ice has broken and I have fallen in.
The coldness of the water has shot though my body.
Now I’m beginning to sink.
Going deeper down into the coldness.
I can no longer move.
Now I'm about to die, body temperature dropping fast.
But my heart & soul isn't giving up, they are going to fight against your words & thoughts.
They are going to keep fighting until they can take over.
So now I'm back on this ice, but I'm making my way across.
So no matter what you may put me though.
I'll always be walking on thin ice & this time I will survive.
