Happy endings

Have you not yet burnt out then little flame?
Have you got light left then still to show the way?
Is there anything left then still for you to burn?
Are you the last light left in this darkened world?

Have you not yet cried out then final gasp?
Have you got breath left then still to stifle pain?
Is there anything left then still for you to say?
Are you the last breath left in this silenced world?

Have you not yet fallen then, my final step
Have you got tread left then still to walk away?
Is there anything left then still for you to stay?
Are you the last place left in this ruined world?

My lantern burned but now is out
My voice sang but now it only shouts
My path was clear but now it turns
Am I a sane man in an insane world?
