But I don’t want to be found.
I’m in distress….
But I’ve never been happier.
I see a world burning,
But I don’t feel the heat.
I smile and I laugh,
While the planet is in retreat.
There’s a voice that says “do something”
But every time I try, I go in reverse.
I’ve given up and focused on me,
I was fighting against an incurable disease,
That crippled my mind, in a time of need.
Now I don’t care if our species succeeds.
I beg the gods for sleep.
Maybe I’ll wait for my death.
As I constantly remember what I reap.
It slowly takes away my breath.
Burdens in the form of memory,
Haunting me so I cannot rest.
Things I wish I would not see,
Keep me strung out and really stressed.
The pain that comes with selfless acts,
The type of person for sacrifice;
For a better world I’ll face the axe.
For a better world I’ll pay the price.
My life to give, to better yours.
Until my death, I’ll watch the horrors.
