The agony of something so desolate and unforgiving
there is no life worth living.

God help me as I walk alone
trying in vain to know a home.

And for all my useless trying,
I often prefer the idea of dying.

Why does this demon follow me
when all I want is to be free?

Are not my thoughts so simple in being?

They are, for all their laughter, seeing
a clown, a jester who's come to the brink
in my escapades when my heart sinks.

Hiding from the reality of now,
to mend this mess, I don't know how.
