Trying to stand tall,

But the wind is so hard and the rain is so cold,

Nowhere left to fall,

So why do what I'm told?

Trying to stand my ground,

But my strength is failing and so is my will,

The earth below me isn't sound,

Falling farther still,

Trying now just to survive,

But the world works against me everyday,

Even in this life I don't feel alive,

But I've come all this way,

Trying to find a reason,

But my thoughts are slowed; so cold; so numb,

Ice from this winter season,

Forgetting what I'm running from.
