Having lived to the end of my days,
I shall gladly take leave of this "stinking piece of flesh."

Once skin-rapped and bundled in beautiful clothes,
An outer presentation for others to see.

Feelings of rage and fear held tight,

Outstretched arms looking for someone to hold.

A labyrinth mind always wanting more,
Searching for a truth never near.

Unpaid bills, broken dreams, relationships unresolved,
Life never quite complete.
