I'm sitting on a black box.
Trying to see what's gone wrong.
I am tired of the sprawling.
I'm not strong enough to start crawling.
What is it
That keeps me here.
I wasn't made for this.
Why bother with the stress.
Why stay with this mess.
I can't hold on to one tight.
I am a Jack of all.
Not of all.
I can't hold on.
I can't go on.
We are slipping through the fingers.
Sliding off the shingles.
Nothing is what they say.
There is not more than one way.
