Tension by Matthew Novacek

tension will grow

and hate will be stirred

lust will be sought

and pain will show

the feeling of regret will cloud your mind

you’ll be lower than dirt

you fell off cloud nine

but pursue you will

and anxious you’ll be

always wanting never satisfied

and never staying still

the thought of death can scare you

you’ll be gone in a blink

you’re gone sooner than you think

so don’t waste time

don’t waste your life

it’s depressing, I know

to think this life is it

but there’s more beyond this

and all you have to do is give in
