These are the darkest days I have ever endured,
My heart is slowly seeping as reality hits
Like a suckerpunch I'm gasping for breath
There's a pain welling inside me I cannot ignore.
A slow realisation that the hopes and the dreams,
The life I have lived for more than a decade
Is coming to an end and like a juggernaut
Its riding over me and I'm tearing at the seams.
There's a constant noise inside so maddening,
I cannot comprehend the words you are saying
Its too late to go back I've come undone
These feelings so mixed, I'm drowning.
Here I am now at the end of it all,
The man that I once was has been devoured
I stare into the abyss and say out loud
"I am not afraid and I will stand tall"
