If I Die Before I Wake

Written by: shane solomon

At a corner standing in despair 
I cried aloud into the midnight air
Brought my fists into a rage 
Scowled at my lonely, self-hate
I had no friends or even close family,
All I had was my imagination, and it was driving me crazy
So I hollered and screamed like a wild banshee
Cursing the things I couldn't grasp in my psyche
The shadows stalked while my heart just bled
I was praying to God that within his next miracle I would be dead
Just like a relic an angel came to me
Eased me of my faults and lulled me into a dream
A beautiful world where hope is a beacon and despair is gone from sight
I grabbed her hand and remembered all of a sudden
Of love that gentle rhythm; and my depression escaped without a fight
So as my eyes twitched open and I quickly looked around
Just like that the angel was gone and so was my frown

In this world our love and compassion is the only thing that should exist
