    As I breathe…
    Eyes weary and forlorn from mist coalesce even from the abysmal miry depths
    of all that is despair and glarest back upon me
    For surely the soul is a swarthy pool and the depths thereof
    Eerily blows a slow chill wind across this the barren hour of my somber solitude
    stirring soul reflections
    Even whispering the utterance of my secret name
    And I am quiet consternation
    Lost child where night is the long unfaltering stride
    that dost inexorably draw nigh
    Yea the quickening pulse… Even the flickering flame…
    As I breathe…
    It is the brooding shadow of death that comest once more as a thief… Nay…
    As a curse… As a company of foul curses to lay siege…
    A legion of vile and hateful devils that draweth nigh even to rend the soul of me
    Lo what mine eyes have seen…
    Fey is the glow from yon moon that fallest stoically upon the gloom and ruins
    of my bygone days to cast her pale radiance ‘pon my past destruction
    Yea if I couldest but find my voice wouldest I call out to the darkness
    dost thou than takest full measure of mine heart?
    But alas…
    Ever is the response, “It is hell that pursueth thee as wild beasts of the wilderness when the scent of prey doth fill their senses. Surely thou wilt don destruction as a cloak against the night. But ye will not be able to put it off and it shall consume thee.”
    Even as my breath doth blend with the chill wind of this present darkness
    mine eyes peer past mine own troubled reflection ever further into the depths of my soul
    seeking that divine connection even that modicum of faith like the fingers of God
    For it is here where faith most matters
    It is now when faith stilleth the flickering flame even illuminating this little light against the sable yawn of destruction
    And even as I breathe…
    The words come…
    Yea though I have stumbled even faltered in my steps I know it to be truth that He which is in me is greater still
    Surely I have done all that I can
    And surely as I breathe…
    Against this very darkness
    I will stand…
