I'm Only One
I live a life of great regret,
All the things I promised but soon forget.
But I always thought there would be more time.
You can't have everything, but it doesn't hurt to try.
Maybe I could let loose for awhile,
It doesn't hurt to live a little wild.
I forgot all morals that had been shoved down my throat.
I laughed at the danger, and considered it a joke.
There's no risk in drugs, no danger in injection.
It's a rush of endorphines, a blinding infection.
I threw my life away on a needle.
How could something so wonderful, leave me so belittled?
I couldn't pull out the future I had tucked away.
All the chances dissaapeared as I injected away the days.
But what didn't kill me made me somewhat stronger,
I still had will to fight the monster.
But even so, I wasn't completley whole.
The monster had consumed me and left me hollow.
But there was enough left to leave it all behind.
No matter my mistake, I wasn't ready to die.
But my dreams and ambitions suffered the ulitmate price.
I didn't have another chance to return to my former life.
I didn't have a wonderful recover story,
There wasn't a miracle result for me.
There was only what I could rescue from myself,
I'm still here, but that's still not enough.
After all that I've been through, what it's made me become,
I know that I'm not a superhuman, I am only one
