Rise and Die

How do I just

give in?

Born into this

resist.

Critical time

to be alive.

It’s obvious

to me,

I’ve missed

something here.

                                                                                                                                          .

Another day,

another dollar.

One more

lost hope;

it doesn’t matter.

Been fighting the tide

for so long,

it might be nice

to just

float along,

and be gone.

                                                                                                                                          .

Wake me up early.

Lay be down late.

I just want

to watch the Sun

rise and die

in this space.

                                                                                                                                          .

Maybe it’s time

to start over.

Maybe it’s time

to move on.

Maybe it’s not me,

and the world

has been wrong

all along.

                                                                                                                                          .

Hard to put

into words,

the way the day

feels to me.

Born to fight,

but I’m tired,

and sometimes

I can’t see.

                                                                                                                                          .

Destiny,

or victory,

or just an empty

blue sky

above me?

                                                                                                                                          .

                                                                                                                                          .
