How many times do I have to die inside,
before I finally pass away?
How many times do I have to lie,
before you'll go away?
How many bonds do we have to break,
before we're swallowed whole?
How many times do I have to die inside,
I would really like to know?

How many tears do I have to shed,
before I finally go blind?
How many screams do I have to hold,
before I lose my mind?
How many nights will I lie awake,
bathed in a cold sweat?
How many times do I have to die inside,
I haven't stopped dying yet?

Plenty but it will be all worth it

Touching sentiments. I ask myself the same questions while reading them here, and I am reminded that the instinct for survival overshadows the temptation of giving in. ^_^

Cheers.

I die every day, then somehow find myself opening my eyes once more....another chance to try again.

I've wondered how many times do I have to die before I get it right? (not a reference to reincarnation)
