Life Hurts

Life Hurts
(by me & Maggie Baird)

Where is it?
Is it here within me?
I don't feel it.
Can I hurt it?
Can I consume it?
Or must I kill it
to see it clear?

Who is it?
Is there a me within me?
I don't feel me.
Can you stop hurting me?
Can you stop consuming me?
Can you hold me dear?
Or must you kill me
to see me clear?

What is it?
It is a fire within me.
I feel the heat.
It won't stop hurting.
It won't stop consuming.
I feel it sear.
Must it kill me
for me to hold life dear?
