The Hard Way

I never knew that my life

was so easy till the day

I came so close to the end.

I was in the bath

soaking in hot water.

I looked to my right

saw my razor,

picked it up to my wrist.

I then went into a bliss.

I wondered what life

would be like without me.

I came back to reality

put my razor on the floor.

I looked at myself in the mirror

and collapsed in the shower door.

It shattered in many pieces

as I lye in the middle of it all.

My life was so easy,

now itís lying in the middle

of a pile of glass.

Shattered pieces of glass

all around my body pierce my flesh

like little needles.

I now know my life would

of been easier if I hadnít taken

the hard way.
