    Trying not to fade away
    Straying to close to the edge
    Dealing and weaving
    with theses Demon
    wearing me discouraging me
    Weakening me

    Trying not to fade away
    Rocking to close to the edge
    Trying to keep my focus
    Holding on to my hope
    Fighting the drudgery
    Of trying to cope

    Trying to stay
    On that positive vibe
    And not get flipped
    On the other side
    Feeling like a magnet
    Being drawn to the ledge
    Shaking myself back
    From the edge.

    Trying, trying and still trying
    To shine a light out of the darkness
    To provide support for our young warriors
    As I put the words out.
    I know the demons are watching (see)

    I will not let them weakening me

    I am an instrument. As I play a tune
    To our race keep the struggle.
    Keep the faith
    My days are number
    One day you got to take
    My placeā€¦
    Stay clear of that edge.
    Peace

    I'm hearing the depth of this message on
    multiple levels...the importance of this piece
    is to hear what is being said...
    yes the flow and the hand painted poetry
    is wonderful...but the message...the message
    should reach us all...because we are all messengers,
    instruments and all of our days are numbered...
    and we should make them count in a postive way

    Thank you for sharing this inspiration...your light is beaming through!
