Living in the shadows
Stabbed in the neck, hammer to the head,
cracked ribs, broken jaw, left for dead.
Slashes to the face, body in a brace,
dumped in the river missing without a trace.
Bowled by a truck or even a car,
bits of bone and flesh smeared and mangled near and far,
Strangled, poisoned even being shot,
Poking with a cattle prong, Why? Why not.....
Being burnt alive, acid melting your face,
Pinged out on junk, attacked with a wheel brace,
these are just some............ of the ways someone can kill,
why would I make such a list, because they gave me a chill.
Living in the shadows, living in fear,
this is where paranoia can take you, I know because I was there.
