How Can I Win

Re: Stress
Posted on: 24th January 2012 8:33am


I have this life
Racked with pain
Full of strife
Constant conscious awareness, such a strain
Pain is a very high cost
It drives me insane
Hope, i've lost
There is no cure, how cruel
In the mirror i look at my skin
What can i do
How can i win?

Heart beats low, bloodless veins
A ceaseless battle from within
Nights so cold, paralytic pain
I feel it all, I feel e v e r y t h i n g
Bogged with unfathomable distress
I am seeking...
Something better but still cannot express
..My desires
..My whims
Woefully forsaken, set me on fire
How can i win?

I have no control, my body slowly dies
The days are long, my nights even longer
I cannot count the tears i've cried
My mind muggy and half awake, wonders
My life is filled with gloom and doomed
My thoughts become massive headaches
My soul depressed, so consumed
Searching for balance, yang & yin
No where nearer am i to Him
My world is hard to take in
Though i am still here, trying to win
