This is the toughest
The dark lanes
The phantoms of the past
The thin alley of faith
This is the toughest

The precarious balance
A weakening sight
The fragility of a resolution
The pangs of neglect
This is the toughest

The haunts of a wound
The flicker of hope
The bats of fear in nocturnal loneliness
The uncertainty of the ahead
The enticing refuge of death
This is the toughest

The toughest is this journey.
