Sharp claws that slash my memories,
Leave trails of despair,
And as the air,
No longer is inhaled by me,
I'm left unconscious and unaware.
Left astray by all of my friends,
My past eats me internally,
With fate being devoured in a sequence,
I know my tears vanish my destiny.
Resignated to put up with life,
I'm negotiating with an old foe,
They say I'm bound to die,
But only God should really know.
Felt empty most of my life,
I can't bare to see pain inscribed,
In a young face,
This is the sign that thrives,
When we've slowed down,
And have no will,
To win the race.
My life stretches with new length,
So I'm well prepared to see tomorrow,
Holding will to manage strength,
I know I'm alone in my own sorrow.
