I’ve been a shadow all my life,
Even in the light I was still cast in darkness,
Everyday I try to escape the haunting voices in my head,
Always demanding I give up,
Always there waiting for my surrender,
Every time am close to saying yes,
To let go of the pain,
To let go of the loneliness,
To finally be free,
But every time I falter,
When am finally there ready to let it all go,
Am I a coward?
Am I that scared?
Why can’t I let go of all the hurt, the tears, the pain,
Only one answer ever comes to mind,
