WAR's Ledge

Crumbling under this pressure
Which has no measure
Losing everything I deeply treasure
Within WAR's multiple sinful fleeting pleasures

Trying to keep my demons at bay
Praying to my God each day
Feeling hopeless and dismayed
Willing it to go away

The answer is known
Every second of each day I am shown
Which is to end it all and let go
Yet I consciously don't

Breaking my pledge
Steeping forward leg by leg
Teetering on this edge
To continue dancing dangerously, with Death, upon WAR's ledge
