    SANITY.

    It's that boulder hanging over the edge of cliff, dangling toward the chasm below.

    Steadied only by a fraying rope, this boulder leans towards the plunge.

    Gravity and destiny... ever calling it into the abyss. Bleeding hands and tired arms battle these relentless forces.

    The voice of reason calls,
    "Hold the rope. Don't let the boulder fall."

    My SANITY. It's that boulder hanging over the edge of cliff; drawing ever
    closer towards an endless spiral downward. Aching body and breaking back begin to falter.

    Gravity and destiny; we know they'll win eventually. Shaky muscles weaken... just like my resolve.

    The voice inside my heart,
    "just let go of the rope."

    INSANITY... that peaceful silence you find when you
    Just
    Let
    Go
