Thoughts Within
It seemed that life had passed me by
All I had left was pain
Despair had taken hold of me
It darkened all I saw
My soul cried out and tears came
I wished my life were o'er
I crawled into my shell once more
I shut the door again
My heart was locked and bound in chains
I saw no light in life
I only wanted solitude
To hide in sorrow's arms
For love - but gave more pain to me
I felt alone inside
Though work remained a daily need
Though friends I had around
Yet darkness clouded all inside
It tore my heart in twain
Release me from this life I cried
Release me from the pain
Take me and free me from this life
I'd rather die than stay
But this was not life's plan for me
My life was just begun
The battles tough - the wounds not few
I struggled on and on
The victory - but a breath away
I head the whispers say
