crawling desperately and weary
after battles won and lost
towards a new year creeping to my door

so many died, to move on to
better or worst
so many turmoil an tribulation

a new year is coming
and I am crawling to meet it
a new chapter to begin
will I get rest before then?
will I start the new year alive
or a crawling walking dead?
