A Lamb Amongst Wolves

Post  Nepenthe on Fri Sep 16, 2011 7:41 am

A very old poem, also originally posted on the first sifriends. I've revised it to make it better, though, and also give it a little more imagery.


The struggle to fight marches on everyday
I'm in shackles and chains; a fly in the web of a spider
The steel is heavier, the silk is stronger
The hunters; their eyes drawing in, closer and closer
Each and every second I'm frightened and weaker
Feeling the need to break down
Then shame is soon to be abound

Why can't one day just go by without the fucking urge to cry?
To break down in tears and swim through self pity?
Weakness prevails, but even I do not get me
My hands are coated with the blood of disgrace
A gravity of guilt
Obstructed burden in my way

Each day's a living lie
For never one will go by without a drastic thought of dying
To wear all my fears on and under my sleeve
I realize I've failed
Now I will be your living feast

The predators always draw near, their eyes on me now
I'm a lamb amongst the wolves
An attack's to be expected
Mutilation carries out, as always I knew it would

So bite me and gnaw me!
Devour me like the nothing I am!
A lamb amongst wolves!
Injured, struggling to survive
Tainted inside from depression and its lies
Cure me and save me? No, nothing gets done
The blood of this lamb is spilled
The pack of wolves are on the run

This made me think. I enjoyed reading it and my apologies for not saying so sooner.
