Please, relent, release me!
Forget me for a few minutes, that I may have the time to catch my breath.
I need time to lick my wounds.
You have been an implacable enemy, pushing, breaking, tearing, and ripping me to pieces.
I have reached my breaking point.
I am drunk with fatigue and pain.
I try getting back on my feet to no avail.
Oh, please, let go of me!
Let me at least get back on my knees that I may fight with dignity.
Oh life, life! Don’t be so mean, spirited.
You have rained blows after blows upon me.
Do let the sunshine of hope rise upon me.
I beseech you, life.
