May I be relieved


Reaching but it keeps slipping

walking forward with hope but the horizon is a mirage

stepping but my feet are rooted

so I haul the world at my feet

I keep fighting.

Cut me as you wish! reveal the diamonds fire.

But, drowning hearts tell me to let go.

There is no comfort in resignation

and the pressing pressure makes me. Kills me.

World. Lord. Have mercy on me

I was promised victory

But, maybe, now, right now,

I’ll take relief.
