Must

So that you are left barely a person Near inhuman, but just... Mind and body wrecked with havoc Trying to persuade people that you are still who you once were They fail to believe- To remember that you are To remember who you are And in remembering, mind turns cheek a pale, bitter pink So flinches the upward turned palm That makes humility seem flawed Purposeless and incomplete Fading, one must, in and out of sleep Just to be sober enough to get on.
