Earth Swallow Me

Have you ever felt so empty That you know not what you want A feeling that keeps you thinking Why every hurt is your fault Such emotional and mental depletion Which keeps heaping anvils on the head Thinking about everything, but nothing Then sad waters begin to shed I say, for i feel I feel it so deep in my marrows I feel it heavily and cannot think All i feel is, heart of sorrows I can hear them now Those voices in my ears They are getting larger now But i feel no fears It shall all be well At least a comforting answer To relieve me from the heart that fell The heart which broke and had no repairer The voices, they tell me "End it all, free your soul from this body The soul has no pain to feel At peace: nothing about which to worry." I rejoice at the solution But then, my soul would be more sad For after the persuaded soul-elevation Many hearts will go bad So now i lie on the shores The Ocean and the land Fate, are you keeping me Or should i bid them, GOOD-BYE

wow, victor. this a very compelling and thought provoking piece. i think many of us have at one point in time considered "soul-elevation".
