Time and again I tried to crawl
the steep wall of my hole.
The higher I climbed the deeper I fell
into the abyss of my soul.
Silence has now conquered
the giant mountains I yelled.
Void has now filled in all
that I once so dearly held.
In light I had hoped to someday play.
Alas, darkness pinned me to the floor.
I neither wish nor do I care
to get up any more…
