When you were young,
The future seemed so bright,
Like a dream within your grasp,
A shaft of golden light.

And then it all got harder,
You couldn't take it all,
Faced with too much heartache,
Your walk became a crawl.

There were never any faces,
Which were friendly when you cried,
Instead they would surround you,
And taunt you with their lies.

But now you're growing weaker,
And you know you cannot live,
So in your final goodbye note,
Remember to forgive.

For when your life breaks down,
And you can't find something new,
Remember there is always someone,
Much worse off than you.
