Once more darkness comes,
Blowing out the flame that lights my way,
Do I have a match left,
Do I even have the strength to strike that match?
Darkness didn’t just find me,
It found another as well,
Luckily it didn’t take her out,
But do I have the strength to strike her match too,
She’s almost lost...
First, I must strike my match and fight my own darkness,
Let her build off that strength,
I’m no good fading away in the black abyss.
But I must find that strength to strike my match in the first place,
Or do I lose myself in the pitch black?
