Drenched in pain and despair

It seems as the world denies your existence

Slowly you fade as if never there

Cold, unhappy solitude

Running from judgement desperately

Imagining a better place

Maybe a sacred sanctuary

In the midst of the sprint to a better life

New obstacles, people, catch up

And in a moment you are released from all your strife

To the hand of a greedy beast

In a flash of light you begin to fly

Onto a warm, happy place

Never fully understading the reason you died
