Constant Strife

My feelings are strange
To my own heart.

I ponder and ponder
To find I’ll never
Know the reason why.

The sky looks the same
So does my habitat.

But deep inside I find
Something is changed.

And the change, it is
The strangest and the greatest
I ever experienced.

I am caught up
In a fight, the very fight
Between hope and despair.

For God, I plead
There be an end to it.

‘Cause I can’t take it
Even a moment more.

I begged despair
And did plead to hope
To stop this war.

Yet they play with my life
As if it were a mere plaything.

And none of them ready
To step down for me.
