The road is dark and shallow,
The air is cold and thin,
The sun's piercing heat
Burst through my lungs,
Making it hard for me to breathe.

And now my memory is failing
So I don't know where I have been.

I am walking,
But, I feel like crawling.
And when I am speaking,
There is no one around here
To listen to what
I have to say.
And when I wake up
I just wonder
If, I have the strength,
To make it through
Yet another day?

All around me,
I see stormy weather,
Eyes full of hunger,
Mouths full of despair.
And that makes me feel helpless,
And I feel so useless,
That I can't wish all that pain away.

Why can't I wish all that pain away?

In the evening,
I am shaking,
My nerves are still waking,
And now I feel
Something burning
Under my skin.
I am hungry.
I am thirsty.
I look at the moon
And I try to grin.
I look for answers
But, all I get is questions.
And to me,
It seems like life's disappointments never end.

Why do life's disappointments never end?

As the sun rises,
Somehow, I feel a sense of gladness,
As I sip from a nearly empty glass of joy.
And now I thank God that
Somehow, someway that
I get to live this day once again

And I hope,
Again and again.
