Been Through Hell

Bracing myself for the impact,

amazed at the walls as they go rushing past,

elated – euphoric – when I don’t crash;

like I’ve done so many times before.


I won’t be restrained – remain in place,

a grin spreads across my face.

Through Hell I come home,

a battle won – the war to go.


Exit – This torment,

come through it and you’ll see for yourself.

Live in it – The moment,

the feeling of leaving Hell itself.

Some stay – they’re chained,

I can’t lead them out.

Escape – this pain,

as I leave the South.

Left and haven’t wondered since,

what drove me down – below the earth.


My wicked ways – My blinded eyes

I’ve been through Hell,

I can’t disguise.

‘Cause in my heart – I’m burned and scarred,

became – I am – not what you are.


Survived to make this life go  well,

I’ve been fucked up – I’ve been through Hell.
