Sad has been my soul of late.
As I drift from lost to trapped
Only hurt can I contemplate
In sorrow I am wrapped
Grief consumes my mental state
An anguish I cannot dismiss
Too real the prison my mind creates
As I sink to a woeful abyss
Such pain shall hasten this body's decay
If balance cannot be achieved
and this mind will surely fade to gray
If these stresses are not relieved
If this time on the Earth is all that we get
I wish to be free of these chains
To know inner peace to forgive my regrets
And find joy in the time that remains.
