Essence of Living (drowned)


He’s swallowed whole by overwhelming fear

To quell the dark morass he drinks his fill

Cringing from the specter in the mirror

~

The purpose of his essence is unclear

All hope of faith is stifled by his will

He’s swallowed whole by overwhelming fear

~

Impending doom is always drawing near

To fit his skin he takes another swill

Cringing from the specter in the mirror

~

He wonders to himself what brought him here

What happened to his child like sense of thrill

He’s swallowed whole by overwhelming fear

~

Though now and then he starts to see things clear

He glimpses God but does it his way still

Cringing from the specter in the mirror

~

His vain attempts are nowhere near sincere

As spirit wanes the body grows more ill

He’s swallowed whole by overwhelming fear

Cringing from the specter in the mirror
