 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

All that I am now
I close my eyes and lay down to sleep
Feeling the empty space
Hoping tonight that my dreams would be better
And I’d wake with the sun on my face.
I have been alone nearly ten thousand days
Ten thousand lonely nights
Trying to build a life that was better
That dream was almost in sight…
But the sky once again came crashing down
My shoulders could not bear the strain
My mind gave in to evil intentions
Leaving all that I am now in pain.
