A thousand voices shout
Fill her with distrust and doubt
Hazy whispers flow in her head
Come to take her in their stead
The weight of the world
Her ears filled with the thunder
The sounds of all the things she’s heard
Falling into the dark
She tries to fly but her wings shatter
The world has left its lasting mark
Take it all; it doesn’t matter.
Unforgiving winds blow over her
Destroying joy and stealing hope
The endless echoes of cold laughter
Push her down the dire slope.
Her cries for help go unheard
And lines of light and dark are blurred
Behind the mask of normality
Slipping away is reality.
Losing count, losing track
She’s fallen and there’s no going back
A final glance into the light
And now she knows she’s lost this fight.
