Awakened by the rays of sun,
bleeding through my window pane
I arise and search within myself…
would my struggles end today.
To face another lonely day
is something I cannot bare
In these walls that I am held within
full of grief and great despair.
For am I strong enough to fill this need
in this search of inner peace
To depart these walls I long to leave….
in a final reckless deed.
