Rest at Peace

Another bout with danger
Staking this new wager
Creating a lust for greed
Trying to fulfill a need
Always left to hunger
Not getting any younger
Trekking down this path
Of a tiring vengeful wrath 
Spending what I gain
Fighting to abstain
Actions without thought
Fearless of being caught 
Chanting words of strife
No purpose left in life
Exhausted with despair
A ruthless mental lair
Anxious to break free
Disappointment sets in me
Crying to be sane
Picking at this brain
Secrets never told
Eventually will unfold
Placing blame on others
As the lies begin to smother
Taking my last breath
Finally I can rest
