I swallowed a pill that took me nowhere,
I followed a path that did not end.
I prayed to Gods that have no ears,
And pretended that mountains could bend.
With failure after failure,
Epiphanies tore me apart.
My sanity lingers with death and magic,
Leaving a carcass of what was once a heart.
I blame hope,
I blame you,
And I do not blame myself.
This new ruthless existence of mine
Is how I was meant to be from the start.
Kill your innocence, rethink your dreams,
This is no place for growth.
If you haven’t realized that life is a joke,
Then you’re intentionally wasting your youth.
