Sombre Fall, Burdened Winter

In Vain

In the times of my trial
 The days slowly moved along
 But nothing ever changed
 I struggled to maintain what was left
 Tried to find some peace of mind

 Days filled with nothing
 And no hope in sight
 Close to losing all ambitions
 I could not endure
 In a deteriorating situation

 Restless sleep
 Again and again
 I cried out in the name of desperation
 Endless nights and shattered expectations
 Haunted my day

 I poured myself out
 Tired of longing
 Awaited the sunrise
 But life could get no colder
 I vanished into obscurity
 No means of solace, no sign of liberation
 In a hopeless reality

 I could not endure
 As life grew ever bleaker

 Restless sleep...

 But as I reflect upon time I realize
 I made it through one of my worst afflictions
 Carried through when times were hard
 Found a meaning in a hopeless situation
 Found peace by time

 Through a somber fall and burdened winter
 With my mind set I resolved the strife
 My adversary can no longer hold me down
 Because there is still a fire burning
 I stand bold and strong
 And hope to stay positive and live among dreamers

 Experience the value of life through pain
 Rise above the depraved
 Ever vigilant, poised to rise against
 Set sail against the wind
 Rather fail, than never try at all
 Reach for the stars
