An anguish floods into my veins
Lashing at me again and again
I stand stupefied at every result
Stupid with every passing thought.
Dejected by my own fate
And rejected at every step
And being so close to the end
No fruit yet borne of these pains.
Misunderstood by my own shadows
Killing myself shallowly for good
I find myself incorrigibly found
Shame, hate, anguish all wound to one.
Lava burning me down within
Which if not vented now
Would cause devastation all around
I fight them all.
