In Progress

A candle once lit, starting to burn out
The night too eager to take its place
Replacing truth with many doubts
covering honor with disgrace

Locked in her heart, it eats her away
Sometimes its better to put up a fight
Stifle and suffocate the awful decay
Pretend that all is well; despite

But the mind is only so strong
and the heart soon follows thought
though a smile can sometimes prolong
the light her eyes once brought

Yet she'll struggle in silence
Swimming hard through the debris
hanging onto prayers for guidance
praying soon that she'll be free

Void of anger, sadness and pain
Floating weightless in serenity
Benevolent thoughts she can attain
To prevent her heart pounding restlessly
