Despondent.

_

What do you do?

Your failure's is all you see

The night sinks in to your fragile bones

You've died before you've even breathed

_

Blood runs dry deep inside

There's nothing left to keep you alive

Yet a smile is fastened to your face

Truths are hidden, you live by lies

_

Pain amplifies harsher and stronger

Love becomes feeble and weak

Demons haunt your lonely nights

Your guardian angel can no longer fight

_

The fire of love dies in ache

Leaving in its wake ashes of hate

Embers of pain freeze your core

And do nothing to melt the ice in your soul

_

With labored breath's you breathe on

In dying hope of a dawn to come

Lying in a dark hollow, six feet deep

Hoping this breath is your last to keep

_

What do you do?

Rise up, leave your failures behind

Let the past go; your heart will beat again inside

Seek the light, its never too far away

_

Even the darkest nights have stars that shine

Caterpillars eventually turn to butterflies

One candle is all you need

It'll get you through to daylight

_

A smile will brighten those empty eyes

You'll learn to love this brief life

For you have found one reason to live

Against those many more to die tonight
