Why Must I Remain
by Michael Gary Marquez

Why am I still living ?
Why must I remain ?
My family is my loneliness
My best friend is my pain
My only love is hatred
And I can only trust a lie
I believe there's nothing to believe in
And I fall back just to get by
Sickness keeps me healthy
And anger makes me smile
I can't come to my senses
Because my senses take awhile
I find wealth in my misfortune
And I've discovered that I'm lost
I don't want to buy another day
But, I'd give one up at any cost
My depression keeps me confident
That things can't get much worse
To die a thousand deaths
Is the life that I rehearse
So why am I still living
The answer won't come clear
It's clouded by my search...
For The reason that I'm here
