Torment and Torture

E n d l e s s lamenting only darkens an uncertain future

            As turns and twist increase, so does my suicidal streak

As righteous and vanity blur

                                                E n d l e s s

                                                I n f o r m a t I o n

            You can’t force someone to be                       free
