never been great with titles, but call me sir if you must

sky seems dark now      
darker than it's ever been      
and I know, I know in my heart        
there's light busting at the seams        
trying to get in        
they don't know        
and there's no way in hell        
I'm ever going to tell them      
most of me died        
in a court room      
way back      
they were children        
and sometimes I resent        
that they still look up to me        
like I'm something to be        
like im something to be        

It may be dark      
and maybe I've grown      
too comfortable with      
the cloak of it      
sense of attrition        
but I've never given up      
or given in        
so dont take those words      
as anything        
but a lorry load        
of self pity
