No matter how you try, theres no turning back.
Try and stop yourself falling,
Falling off this broken track.
My friends hold me tight,
Stop me as much as they can
I long to be free from it,
From the hurt and the pain
Your fallng over the edge, tumbling down, down,
We try to catch you,
Hands slipping, Holding and leting go
Holding and letting go

Safe for a while and grateful beyond.
Looking over my sholder too much,
I run into Karma again,
Here I am, back on the edge.
You grow hysterical, yet we mistake it
As your Prozac
Once again your in pain, in fear.
Again, again the broken track
I'm sobbing harder, harder

Look around at my new place.
Tears fall fast
As my heart beats its last.
Yet outside your smiling,

Remarks made about farts and even other
Rude things. Sometimes even your brother
Would crack another joke or two,
Expanding into a fit that grew
And grew until few stopped in thought.
Family and friends we are lucky to keep,
Many people are alone and weep,
Crying themselves to sleep, wanting someone,
Someone to talk to, to care for. A mom
Or a dad to say I love you, fun with

This is courage in a man: to bear unflinchingly what heavens send. Euripides
To stare death in the eyes, to dare what others may dream to dare, to fight when losing is certain. Prepared for the next event I stand, waiting
for them. Rain pouring off my forehead, memories flooding my focused mind
I close my eyes in sanctuary, for one last moment to reflect upon life. My family, friends, everyone I have ever known surround me, gazing into my blazing eyes. The surroundings fade into light, the rain becomes motionless, everything still
Silence overwhelms the peaceful aura of the moment. Time stands still for one last time; I calmly rotate to see each individual person in turn.
My past family, the ones that sacrificed their life so I could go on. 25 years had passed since I saw their warm glow. My childhood flickers ahead of my tear-filled eyes. Recalls of our happiness trickles d
