spawn, devour, expire,


in the echo of existence's sway,
resides a tale we can't evade,
consumed by wants, ensnared by need,
longing for a path to heed.

muted by drugs, silenced by a cry,
we are a living lie,
yet within, dreams still strive,
yearning to break free and thrive.

awaken from slumber, break the bind,
discover purpose beyond the grind,
in truth's embrace, reclaim your voice,
rise above the cycle, make your choice.
