I Tried


I tried to run

I tried to hide 

Tried to fight the monster that’s inside

But I see an endless sun
I think of when I showed my fear 

And wish I’d see the moon once more

I look inside to my deep core

And whisper to you my dear
Can you hear me I don’t know

Pull me out

Another bought 

And I just sit there and say no
I burn inside from weary days

When roads have been but miles and miles

And endless suffering with no smiles

And I fight in eternal frays
But all this accomplishes is in the end

An eternal flame for me to spurn 

My mind takes another turn

And once more I cannot fend
And so I wait for my kingdom come

And God to hear my final prayers
