Marsha Lanning

Dark as night
Bright as day
Love as hate

This is what my life has come to.
Everyday is not a new beginning
It's just another dead end.

When I look into the mirror
I see not me but someone that only I can see
When will this cold, shadowy night end
So that I will be able to live another day again.

Time has passed
So fast didn't even see it go
But tonight things will change
With my soul.

The blood runs down my arm
As I take my last breath
As I say good-bye to the world I know
Tomorrow will be a new beginning

And I shall now rest for tomorrow is a new day.
