How Much I Can Bear

Just How Much...

My mind is fogged and clouded.


I try to see what the picture is.


But it's all just a blur.


My heart can't bear the pain that it inflicts onto my withered flesh.


My very being in this world feels... Bland.


Wandering aimlessly like lambs to slaughter.


I wonder how much I can bear...


How much I can take...


This pain that's inflicted on me festers about.


And it leaves me rotting and decaying inside.


Until I feel, nothing...


Like a hollowed shell of my former self.


Why has this happened?


Are these the cards I'm dealt from God?


It's at times like these I really think.


I yearn for the liberation from this wretched world...


And to finally find true freedom.


In peace and silence.


I wonder how much I can bear...
