Well here goes another night,

Of me trying to hide my fight,

With a heavy heart but possessions light,

Stranded on an island of no options, not a boat in sight,

The only boat that helps is anchored with a tether,

The help is in secret with the fear that we'll be misunderstood if people ship us together,

Well, the boat doesn't have heaven either, it's haunted by stormy weather,

It'll face punishments if caught, much worse than whips of leather,

But such is the story of mine,

I give not a single SOS sign,

It's just until fate sees my joy cross the line,

It makes me think that everything's really fine,

But then comes the great dive,

I was thriving a while ago but now I'm barely alive,

I'll fate works overtime, skipping the rule of nine to five,

But I don't stop either, it's not with me that drones hive,

I'll come up stronger than before,

I'll face all that fate's got in store,

I know that there's never a situation with not a single opened door,

Even if there is, I'll start my work on digging the floor,

I'll come out of it and stand tall again,

But I won't want an appreciation of how much I sustain,

It's not fame or people that I wanna gain,

It's just my pretence I wanna keep up, pretence of feeling no pain
