sometimes the sickness wins by blackoutangel

sometimes the darkness snuffs out the light
before the day even begins
sometimes a bird dies before it takes flight
sometimes the sickness wins

sometimes ideals get crushed by the truth
and the ship sinks before it can sail
sometimes your white knights are proven uncouth
and all of your hard work still fails

sometimes your doctors can’t find a cure
and your saints are just hiding their sins
i’ve seen all i can, i can’t take any more
sometimes the sickness wins.

    Fantastic site an awesome image and find.

  • that’s one of the nicest compliments anyone has ever given me, my friend. still, you do your own work a disservice – it needs no advice from me to stand on its own.
