Without Cause

It is not clear
my life... my reason
the secret scheme
of each passing season
weathering the drought
filled storms
the self ruination
of being reborn
it takes a tremendous
amount of energy
to fight the conscious
will of me
it is without cause
without reason for being
you see, and that's why
it's so frightening
life itself now
is my enemy
divorced, even my neighbors
have turned away from me
and so it is within
the battle rages
the lights are on
I have set the stages
and I curse them all
in blunt words
of my abhorrent past
I must hold on
while my strength does last
for the curtain is dropping
and falling fast...
