  • After a while
    it gets easier

    no, it doesn't
    it gets harder

    you know what's coming
    you know the pain

    the sweat
    the panting

    the aches
    the strain

    after a while

    and the lows
    abyss deep

    that place you stare into,
    see yourself staring back

    asking over and over
    is this all I am

    is there nothing more
    you know, don't you

    once again

    you tell yourself...
