Sinking deeper into fear,
The pain within is crystal clear,
Angst cripples me inside,
As the world and I slowly rive,

Is this who I’m meant to be?
Weakened, hopeless - unchangeably,
Unable to savour a bout of fun,
I can’t shift the sorrow it weighs a ton,

I lose control as hurt ascends,
But my mind and I must make amends,
Outside my mask is waterproof,
Concealing the doubt and painful truth,

I hold with those who can not speak,
No courage, such pain it makes you weak,
My heart is empty without fear,
As I wave farewell to that last tear.
