The Rot



Something is inside me deep.  

Touches me throughout my core. 

And if you look at where it keeps, 

You'll see it reaches out more and more.

I'm going to dig the rot out


It's a growth that has taken

many years to taint my soul.

Hidden as though I'm forsaken

pretending that I'm whole. 

I'm going to dig the rot out


But now I want to reveal

who I truly am

I'll remember that I can heal

to show that I'm far from damned

I'm going to dig the rot out


Once it has been eradicated from me

there will be barely anything left

I'll survey this empty space I see,

and start anew from the bereft. 

I'm going to dig the rot out
