Dear Lord, when shall I be free of this curse,
the one that I have brought unto myself
as a foolish remedy for the pain
that seized my life in those tumultuous days?
I can still remember the beginning,
ever so vividly as if it were
a memory fresh out of yesterday,
although a decade has transpired, at least!
Now the pain has become a history
and yet the curse that it has left behind
is as poisonous as the pain itself,
killing me, slow but steadily for sure!
