A Reason To Exist

Is it in your nature to cast aside
the memories that defined who you were?
Will you still breathe when you are forgotten
by those who clamoured for you? 

You may have lost your dreams
but did you lose
a reason to exist?

Do you feel you have lost your soul
to the shimmering lights of the crowd?
When you search for redemption
you'll find it where you left your heart

You may have lost your glory years
but did you lose
a reason to exist?

Do you believe God has forsaken you?
Do you believe the times have left you behind?
Left to gather dust in some backwoods town
when you know deep down that you
deserve so much better than that
But your life will be the death of you
yet you still cling
to what you believe is
a reason to exist
 

The End
