Sad and long my hours are
Is life to be written in song?
This world and its harshness grow worse with the passing day
How long must I submit to the masters of my own choosing?
This darkness that overshadows this light I cannot find
That weariness that takes my hope and leaves only shame
My agony rivals only yours
When do my shorter days come?
My long nights and sleepless dreams
My blackness shuts out the lights that shut out the darkness
