Cornered in all directions,
By lies, pressure and failed objections.
My world crumbles before my eyes,
My once victorious spirit dies.

Cornered with no way out,
I desperately seek the escape route.
cornered by pain and affliction,
A defeated, battered man shows my reflection.

Cornered by life on a steep cliff,
Shedding tears accompanied by a slight sniff.
That's all that's left of a man once thought courageous,
But remember, when cornered an animal is most dangerous.
