Look straight ahead,
Muscles tense.
Keep moving on.
There is no sense
Of reason.
My body's committed treason.

Reflex action turns
My burning eyes.
Under the clock
The time ticking down.
Wearing a frown, I try not to drown.

Dry throat
I start to choke.
I created this mess
The gaping emptiness.
Stop it, I don't know how to stop it.
Clench my fists
Sinews tighten
I must remember to fight on.
Bring my feet in contact with the ground
Wearing me down, I try not to drown.

Must remember to keep my distance
In every violent stage of the day
To reach that goal
To find my way
If I should forget
To keep up this pressure
That would be it.
There can be no surrender.

After the ordeal
The loss of my humanity.
Regaining control
It all seems so silly.
In a corner of my mind
There is a part of me that's blind
The switch I can't reach.
It is out of my reach.
