Glance at your reflection

Staring at you aimlessly

Your mind is full of questions

Picture of obscurity

-

Suffocating without answer

In the toxic atmosphere

Despondence growing like a cancer

Only adding to your fear

-

Stolid in your loneliness

Self-control begins to wilt

Fill your guts with thoughtlessness

And trip upon your guilt

-

Through swirling winds of torment

A tempest of reality

Live and die within your moment

Pain without validity

-

Watched by shadows unaware

Of your freedom closing in

Your weakness spilling everywhere

As gravity claims its victim

-

I awoke from this fantasy

In all the horrors of the dark

And thought about my tragedy

It chilled me to the broken heart

-

Action without simple knowledge

How very tragic, what a waste

Before taking on the greatest challenge

Re-evaluate your place

-

The role of cadaver in this tale

Had nearly become mine

But priority and rationale

May someday save your life
