One thing in life that has always pissed me off is a coward. Not the type that is honest with their fears, but the type of coward who hides their fears until it's time to face them, which is around
the same time they run away. This piece doesn't need to much description, it's pretty direct and it speaks pretty clearly for itself. Be sure to watch the youtube video as you read along.

When Shovel Meets Rock Bottom

 

I harbor a hatred, and at times it's all-consuming

What I lack is an option to fold, or an acceptance to falter

It's all that I can do just to breathe and maintain

But let it be known that I will always push onward

I never take time to look back nor think twice

For such times as these should merit no one's pause

I'll never acknowledge this labyrinth of hate as:

A struggle, or a challenge. I bear no one's cross.

 

It truly makes me fucking sick

to hear a grown man talk hard and then run away

One thing that I can't fucking stand

is a coward with an opinion and something to say

 

So tell me, how can there be any conviction-

if there was never a heart?

Anchored down by a life a failures

The coward is always torn apart

Until then, the vultures will circle overhead

and he'll be unacknowledged by the living

and rejected by the dead
