Sweet jeez, uplift my spirit
My fears incapacitate me
These rocky roads slow me down
How much farther must I go?
How much more pain can my heart accommodate?
All my life, I have sought closure
Slippery slopes and steep alps
These curvy roads freak me out
A dissatisfying journey without end
The hope in me begins to linger
Battling with the weakness in me, it is pushing me to quit
It is World War III going on inside my dome
Only a few minutes to arrive at my destination
Yet there is no hope of reaching the big gates
The route of sharp nails, spike strips and shattered pieces of glasses
Giving up is not an option
In the last drop of my blood will I find sustenance
I will strive
I will fight
I will thrive
I will get to Nirvana.
