Fury of Frustration

I work up a sweat every single day I struggle to belong somewhere, to stay It’s like I’m fighting a hopeless battle I’m powerless and the poisonous snakes rattle I feel death’s embrace coming nearer I hear his voice, getting clearer Death even wrapped me in chains Another burden on top of all of my pains There is nothing but blackness around I think I’m deaf; I hear no sound I close my eyes accepting my fate I have no savior, whoever it was its too late “NO! YOU MORON, YOU MUST SURVIVE!!!! YOU CANT GIVE UP, FIGHT TO STAY ALIVE!!!! LIFE IS BUT A WH*RE THAT YOU DON’T NEED TO SCORE!!! WHAT ARE YOU STILL LYING HERE FOR?!!” I open my eyes as they search for the voice, my savior Never did I think they’d have an eccentric behavior I see nothing but flames of mystical blue They envelope me, yet they feel like dew “I can’t believe I belong to a coward Who doesn’t have the courage to step forward” The sound seemed to come from everywhere I didn’t know who to answer, where? “You don’t have to see me to know I exist But I’ll show you my form because you’ll insist” I’m speechless from the knowledge of the voice It makes me feel like I truly have no choice “Who are you? Show yourself”, I croak A man appears, the flames are his cloak Looks strong, fierce and prepared for anything It’s surreal, I pretend that I can’t see a thing He waits for me to acknowledge his existence Doesn’t give up easy, I admire his persistence “You are ready to learn of your power You must make sure, you, it won’t devour” “The demon inside you will make you strong But don’t let it stay in control for too long Or your existence shall be erased forever And to be able to come back will be never” I’m surprised I had such a weapon at my disposal I keenly agree to the man’s proposal “This power existed since the beginning of creation I present to you, the fury of frustration”
