I just want to live, I don’t want to be dead,
this ceaseless litany whirls around in my head
thoughts cluster around like birds taking flight
worse than any dark dreams grasping at night
BUT what is the point, why are we here
why live this life if beset by such fear
seeing pain and sorrow felt every day
a wave of suffering that won’t go away
as if the Earth is crying at every foul deed
that humanity wields, Oh why were we ever a seed?
Surely planted to grow and live in harmony with Nature,
Humane? No not us, we’re the wildest of creature!!
