I yawn at the world’s ignorance,
I’m imprisoned by its burdens,
Forever frowning upon life,
As I walk into the darkness.
Looking through that covered window,
I imagine what life could be,
Wishing the brightness would shine through,
But I lay alone defeated.
I see through the murky tunnel,
Masterful of my destiny,
The faint light vanishing slowly,
While I wander about, hopeless.
Should I surrender to nature,
Only to watch myself recede?
Would I smile as others grieve me?
Why delay the inevitable?
