frail and afraid to be forgotten, i feel old and worn,
too many times, iv had my mere being torn,
forgive me if i will not reason,
it feels as if everything is treason,
i have lived a life of betrayal and mistrust,
but trust is you, in us, i must,
i am trying to fight my fears,
lonely now, i free my tears,
flowing strongly like never before,
oh this pain, i cant bare much more
not seeing you here,
not feeling you near,
reality has hit me like a train on the run,
its like the weight of the world is on me, it weights a tonne,
i want to be free of the constraints that hold me,
but i am terrified, what if this couldnt be,
wat if i cant relive myself of this ongoing pain?
what if i have to go through it all over again?

give me a hand to hold,
show me how to be bold,
when i felt the end was near,
you tod me you were right here,
i was so close i could taste freedom,
i didnt know who i was or whre i was from,
i just wanted it to end then and there,
but you should me a way that i could bare,
I was so close, i could hear peace calling me,
it was there where i should be,
but i turned away 
and said goodbye death, today is not my day.
