God, god, oh god, I am so scared.
So so scared, to do what I yearn to do.

Scared, scared, oh so freaking scared,
to do what I need to do to live,
truly live – not just survive.

I am so shaking nervous
to let go of the tiny bird in my hand,
although I know holding on to it
won't do me nor it any good.

So, so, so afraid to fail
when hunting for the two in the bush,
ever evasive birds of peace of mind and freedom.


But I'll need both their wings
to finally fly.

demons, all of you, i am no longer afraid.
i am longer afraid, to give up what i've yearned for.

numb, desensitized, just so very numb,
even to everything hastening my death,
can it really be - i don't want to live any longer.

i am standing here so patiently
tightly gripping the beast in my chest,
i cannot feel it in my hands
but it feels like i am doing something.

i have lost the will to win
when i cannot lose the two between heaven and earth,
the ever-present dragons of chaos and order.

but i don't need either one of their talons
since i've already fallen.

demons, all of you, begone!
I am no longer afraid of loosing
Your talons that rip apart my thigh.

the food they gave was poisoned,
made to make me weak and afraid.
I still got the bitter taste on my tongue.

I want to, I yearn to live!
And I am no longer afraid
of starving on the hunt.

A starving body is still stronger than a starving soul.

angel, my angel, where have you gone?
i fear that i am holding back
i do not have your soft touch that keeps me together.

i'd rather be sick than starved this way,
my fear is my only strength.
there is no sweetness left to taste.

i don't want this anymore, can i just end this?
i am just so afraid
that i will not gain anything from moving forward.

my strong soul is just not enough to keep my body sustained.

I think I know the feeling. Not sure if I interpret the situation right, but it makes me dizzy to read this. There's so much hope between the fear!
