To live ones life in a dark shadow,
Is like living where there is no other soul.
Being alone, frightened, upset,
Fearful of dying someday.
Living in pain and agony each day.
Pain, deep torturous pain that rips
Apart ones feelings and eats away at the heart.
Fearing the days that one has to live through.
Wondering will I wake up tomorrow morning
And live another day?
Or will I die peacefully in my sleep tonight?
Thank God for giving me another day-
I hate the devil for making my days
Torturous and dreadful.
I despise him for not letting me live my life.
I cry each night and day.
I look for a friend,
I look for a stranger,
No one is around.
No one but my feelings and the dark shadows
That haunt me day and night.
I deal with my pain every day,
But I have learned to deal with
What I have to go through,
And now I must go on knowing
There is no turning back.
