In Illness I Drown

By sum girl
one day I'll learn to smile,
feeling that my life is worthwhile.
someday the pain will be gone,
and I'll know that I finally won
the war that I fought,
so distraught with my illness,
feeling so numb,
I succumb to the sickness,
stuck in a cycle so vicious,
in illness I drown.

they say that a smile
is an inverted frown
but all I see is denial
dressed up like a clown.
hopelessness so profound,
the anger resounds
in my head as it pounds.

how do I get out,
screaming and shouting,
mind filled with doubt,
but I only condition
myself to be crippled
with fear,
as I siphon life
leaving a shriveled
corpse souvenir.

just make it stop,
if it goes 'til I drop,
I'll break, I can't take it!
under this spell,
I wonder if I'll ever make it
out or, forever forsaken,
in misery dwell.

only time will tell
hell vacation's duration,
but I hope and I pray
that I'll keep moving on,
let yesterday slip from my palm.
if only I'd extract myself from the dark,
embark on a mission
out of my condition.
know there's no solace in grieving
because the reality I perceive
is what I believe in.

and so I tell myself yet
I won't hold any bets,
that someday a new dawn
will make all the pain
slip from my palm,
this game of roulette
with my life will stop,
feel it sink in as my pulse drops,
I'll let go of this strife
that's no longer worthwhile,
and closing my eyes, forever I'll smile.
