Under the Shade

Work By: Samantha Ferol


Pills in hand, I decide my fate

To leave or stay in this world of hate

Team of one, I feel so alone

No family or friends and I don't have a home


The bottle is next to me, my name in bold

Cap in the river, and the pills are gold

My final escape, the final frontier

I feel no remorse and I feel no fear


A serenity washes over me

The calmest I have been

No judgement or mockery

For my life of sin


God save my heart

And bless my soul 

Please believe me when I say

This was not my goal


I wanted to marry

And I wanted to have kids to care for

I wanted to grow old

I just wanted so much more


Now I see no other way

To keep everyone safe from this grenade

I will lie here and be found

Next to the river and under the shade
