Where I Lay

Tell me if you've ever felt a tear in your eye
Tell me if you ever were determined not to cry
Tell me if you ever let go, cause after blow after blow
He finally ripped out your heart and soul

Tell me if you thought you were strong
Tell me if you were ever proved wrong
Tell me if it'd be a lie
If you ever said, no, I don't want to die

Because I think, think I'm losing my mind
And I think after all this time
I think, I think I'm done with the fall
Please let me be at the end of the hole

Tell me if you've pounded your fists
Tell me if that ever brought you justice
Tell me if you want to scream with all your might
But you can't let no one hear you break down at night

Because I think, think I'm falling apart
Can't even feel the beat of my heart
And I think, oh please be done with the struggle
Just let me lie here and crumble

Very good poem! It speaks wisely of emotion and defeat and resignation. Well done.
