I'm helpless,

To watch as it grows,

Larger and larger,

So larger that it shows.

All these memories,

Haunting my mind.

Reminding me of long lost times,

That I've never been able to find.

I've lost myself,

Lost all control over it.

The pieces are too small,

To tell which ones fit.

There's always something,

That reminds me of the past.

Of how those times flew right by,

And disappeared much too fast.

The shadows are mocking me,

Everywhere I go.

Dancing around me in slow circles,

Flashing to and fro.

Slowly torturing me,

Until I've learned my lesson.

Constantly fueling,

This growing depression.

They all try to change me,

And shape me into what they want.

But I know my own place,

And ignore this harassing taunt.

I may be makred,

But I bear these scars with pride.

For they remind me of the past,

And who I really am inside.

Even thought I have tried,

With all of my might,

I'm a sloider--wounded,

So I must give up the fight.

I've been beated down too many times,

Tired of being in pain.

I'll play along with their little games,

Even thought their efforts were in vain.

I've been beated and thrown to the ground,

And I'm too afraid to get back on my feet.

For my enemy stands right over my head,

And I know I'll easily be beat.

I'm not strong,

Enough to keep up this fight.

They arr forcing me to live,

Forever in enteral night.

I give up, they win.

Their words hurt enough to kill.

I'm too badly wounded to get back up and fight.

Do with me what you will.
