If ever you sit and wonder How does this all work out Just remember who you are, Even when filled with doubt. The stillness in your eyes Make you look so lost and forlorn, The weight heavy on your shoulders Make it clear you too, are worn. The barrel at your temple Might be good for a way around, The pills you've held before, People do not like that sound. The rope is dangling from a ceiling, Gleaming impishly, oh why?
