This is a poem written at the height of my personal despair in 2015 and never published, but now I have seen the light in my darkness I thought why not let the world see the depths of what was my dark mind.

Darkness is the answer

Peace is not for me

Dreams are not the future

They are the way to be free


When I look deep inside

I can see the white of bone

I wish I could be loved

So I know I am not alone


Death is the way

Death is the truth

Death is free

Death is the future

Death is me!


All I want is to be

To exist and please stay

In this decaying world

But you won’t let me play


This world is not for me

They destroyed my toy

And now you pray

To that carpenters boy


Nothing will change

You walk blinded by fear

Streets run with blood

And not a solitary tear


Death is the answer

Death is the priest

Death is light

Death is the inevitable

Death is me!
