United States

I hesitated to be respirated
Now I'm exasperated
My thoughts an infection
So I rested waiting
For the right moment to strike
So I could take a second
To look back at my life
See what it was and
See what it is now
How I felt and how
I let you down
I fall to the ground begging
Even pleading
For a second chance to
Continue living, continue breathing
