[Poem] Life

[Poem] Life

Torn, withering, falling apart,

Heaven or hell you do not consider;

Sinking you see your life’s sail

Dripping with blood comes along your tale.

 

Flown away you find the joyous moments

Of life when care was then so rare

Deep within you shout your wounds

The harder you try to strangle those sounds.

 

Secluded stands your spirit once

Stranded in an unfathomable land;

Shrinking within yourself see

Your soul setting itself free!
