Fade Away

Fade Away
No one can know
The price that I have paid
To allow my body
To fade away
It has robbed my spirit
It has eroded my soul
On my mind, on my body
It has takes its toll
Has the hole I have dug
become so deep
That I have nothing left to do
but accept it and weep?
My body betrays me
as I try to re-fuel
It laughs and it mocks me
I feel like a fool
I want to throw in the towel
and just run away
The stakes are too high
In this game that I play
I Have nothing to lose
And everything to gain
If I could step off this path
of shame and pain
