Is it really how they say?

To live your life

With emptiness so deep,

It kills you within.

 

Is it really how it sounds?

To shout and wail

With a voice so desperate,

It tears you apart.

 

Is it really how it tastes?

To swallow the truth

With flavors so bitter,

It poisons you within.

 

Is it really how it feels?

To touch your inner self

With hands so impure,

It darkens you forever.

 

Is it really how they say?

To live your life

With thoughts so shallow,

It kills you within.
