Time to Die

Time is of the essence
These last few days alive.
Something must be found
For, something is lost inside.

I’m trying to reach deep within
Where I know I really am.
Tearing through the emptiness
To discover who I am.

As I said not long ago,
I know there must be more.
There is no key to be found,
To open the hidden door.

I have this pain far inside,
And I continue to ask, why?
There is a voice calling to me,
I feel its’ time to die. . . .
