Lay down it’s done.

Once you existed.

Now you do not.

Once you mattered.

Too soon, you are forgot.

Your value is done,

They have had their fun.

Let go of that silly hope,

It is a worthless mental rope.

All the things you once thought true,

Have been proven false.

Look in the mirror and see,

What you are, not what you will be.

Why is it we do not lay down,

When all the world says we are done?

Why do we keep going,

When there is no destination in sight?

I once thought holding tight to 1 thing,

Would make the journey survivable.

They are winning there too.

I was just a great fool.
