Could You?

Could you run your fingers through a soul so poisoned

Let the acid burn seep under your nails

Watch a black heart crumble in your palm

And wonder where it is you seemed to fail?

Could you watch the blood flow through the cotton

Let the stitches pop when you pull too tight

Watch the infection eat your body

And wonder if you should just give up or fight?

Could you look at life as still a blessing

Let these morbid thoughts sink deeply down

Watch your body change from one to another

And wonder if you should smile or frown?

Could you manage laughter behind swarms of tears

Let your life change in a million different ways

Watch the people stare when you walk through door

And wonder if you should go or just stay?
