Dark clouds rain down on me,
Tears from years of misery.
This game called life has been so cruel,
Thinking back was I a fool?
This box I am in has no way out.
No doors or windows to hear me shout.
My only escape is through the light,
It shines within, but fear the flight.
If I sacrifice my soul,
I will never grow old.
But the pain left behind,
Will scald my mind.
Please save the lonely left in the dark.
Walking this earth with broken hearts.
Screams of hope that someone will hear,
Only silence comes before the last tear.
