Free

Reaching out from pain of past;
My mind a hold upon me hast.
Searching for a light to follow;
But my hope does darkness swallow.

Forced to ground on bended knee;
No one found to hear my plea.
The loss of trust, too much to bear;
Cannot stand and do not care.

Future lost, my dreams have died;
Until now they all have lied.
No kind word or outstretched hand;
Can bring me back to living land.

Alone I wait for life’s last dusk;
My soul is gone, am only husk.
Won’t break away from sorrow’s grip;
No more journeys, but one last trip.

Then off I’ll go, no tear to cry;
No warm wish or long goodbye.
Just like that, from Earth I’m cast;
Still alone, but free at last.
