portrait_by_Victoria_VillalobosNo one knows how it feels,
No one feels how it hurts me
Caught in the limbo of uncertainty
Swimming in the ocean of hopeless
I dangle back and forth aimlessly
My pain is profound, too deep to be healed
Sorrow made its nest in my soul
And then, yes, failure become my shadow
Stealing my dreams
Blocking my goals.

Faith and hope left me
To anguish daily
My indisposed body is fatigued
My wounded heart is bleeding as
My pale eyes weep for a miserable destiny
This cruel and bitter life is a monster
Chewing and eating me gradually
My last demand, my kind God
Please send the angel of death
To release this injured soul.
