I stroll through the path laid before me;

Sacrifice love for a hellish sanity.

I weep for the loss of a peace

I never did find.

Looming before me is a destiny

I do not want but is too

Strong for me to change.

No one sees me crying inside,

So no one will see me as,

Slowly, I drift toward My Never Land.

Careless, I wander here,

In between My Mind and The Outside.

So often we die, slowly, only to

Have out lives snuffed out.

Candlelight burns only as long as allowed.

My light was denied long ago, and Yet I fight…

Unsuccessfully raging against my destiny.
