The Human Condition

Written by: Michael Domaracki

THE HUMAN CONDITION


DAY AFTER DAY MY MORTALITY COMES TO HAUNT ME
MY SPIRIT FADES WHEN I LOOK 
   BUT CANNOT SEE REFLECTION
A TRIGGER PULL AWAY FROM AN UNFINISHED EPITAPH
I’LL RIDE THE LIGHT
   UNTIL IT SHINES NO MORE


I CURSE THE WAR THAT IS WAGED EVERYDAY 
   WITHIN ME
UNSEEN FORCES PUSHING AND PULLING
   AS IF TO TEST MY WILL
I FIGHT MY DESIRE TO SHED MY DEMONS 
   BECAUSE OF THE PAIN
FEELINGS I KNOW I CAN INFLICT AND I KNOW
   MAY NEVER FADE


WE CARRY THE WEIGHT OF EACH OF OUR WORLDS
IT’S THE HUMAN CONDITION
BARING THE BURDEN OF MY TORTURED SOUL
AS ONE FINAL ACT OF CONTRITION
MY HUMAN CONDITION
