Dear God, Hear My Cries

You say fear not, for I am with you

But I've been alone for days on end

Bleached white walls surround but never give

In my current state I stop believing in you,

In me, in everything I once had

I relinquish, I offer to the universe

Everything you created for me

Hemispheres are dead weight

On the blades of my shoulders

And my legs quiver under their truth

I cannot take this any longer

Take it back, I opt out

I am truly not your strongest soldier

I cannot bear this quest, this trial by fire

Let me out, I give up

You lied to me, did you not
