Robbed Childhood. Misplaced Responsibilities. Healing.


Battling above water,

Drowning in sorrow.

Heart in drought

yet giving,

Physically burnt out

Yet striving

To improve failing system.

Loss of play

Buried in work.

When you stood fit

Why not bolt

To set me free?

When freedom realized

Why not light

The way for me?

Relieve my load,

Reclaim your place.

Cared, not cared

It’s all the same today,

Emotional murder

And you run free.

Head in the ground

To shut it down.


With arms wide open


I stand below a waterfall,


What a lovely day to die.


Oh weary heart, I divert


My cares to you, rest now,


Be carried on pearly clouds.
