"I know and Understand deep down inside and beyond that life itself is acting all of this out; this kamikaze drama, cosmic if you will but certainly comic in a style so common as to invite confusion" -Al Young (How stars start)

Do, deign or die by life's hand
My pen my only protection against her attacks.
Not in body but in soul I perish by her hand.
Flesh, bone and bloody suicide of half of me.
Then circumstances rise but will I meet the challenge?
Do deign or die by life's hand but she's pro-choice.
Abortions being figurative.
Wants you to die before you begin to understand your purpose.
To conform beautiful thoughts and dreams and hopes into struggle and dispair.
But since she is pro-choice, she lets you descide how you begin to approach her
But despondence only exists to the broken.

I'm not fully understanding what this is about? At first I was like suicide, depression? Then it sounded like abortion? I don't know, what was the meaning?

I really liked the wording and the flow though. I especially like "My pen my only protection"[:
