Every quiet sorrow
that invades my heart
brings a sadness all it's own
over which I have no control.
Every wondrous joy
I refuse to allow another
takes it's own special toll
on my life.
Every potent entity
I refuse to follow
has it's own individual price
my soul must pay to keep it's freedom.
This shaking cup of life I hold
contains a poison I must allways swallow
that touches every part of my being
yet bears a truth I can never know.
