Farewell, Cruel World

It was a pleasure to burn
The memories faded
As I lit the match
My eyes were jaded

How dare they laugh and scorn
At my dreams, my hopes
My only freedom from this life
Without which, I cannot cope

I will soon be free and content
To be what they will not let me
I will be among my pride
As a lion on the Serengeti

So here’s to resurrection
To be reborn as we truly are
I as I tip the poison down my throat
Farewell, cruel world. RAAWR
