You Know Where I Lie

Sitting here listening to the sounds of nature
And the lonely view of a starless sky
I realize that my faults are my own
I can’t blame them on the world anymore

So many thoughts roam my head forcing me to cry
As I can’t find a reason for my pity
I have love, and friendship, and ability,
And everything I should need to carry on

But I can’t, I’m stuck here
Moaning because I have no visible place to go
Because I have no hope for my life

Innocence is gone from the earth
And with it taken happiness
This day began with light
Yet here, now, sojourns with death
