Equation 195 : Aokigahara

You were lost,
Lost so deep in the dark forest,
You look around and there isn't anything close,
Apart from silent and darkness that frightens your soul,
You wanted to look away,
But at the end you stood there still,
Looking deep and think inside your heart...
Are you thinking clear?
Or are you afraid of what is inside?
Does it give you a fright?
Would you walk in through the darkness?
In a world that you can't even scream,
Because it would be just you,
Only you that could hear your voice shrieking,
Or see anything clear.

Through a long journey,
Along the way you will see,
Those dead bodies sitting down,
Hanging dead,
From their previous dreadful life,
They were living in despair,
They were crying in pain,
Pleading for mercy for the guilt of their past,
Crawling towards your way,
You felt terrified,
You are too afraid,
You wanted to run away,
Run away to escape,
But the path that you take was too dark,
You slipped down and fell painfully.

The ache that you felt burns deep in your heart,
Grumbling rigidly,
You sealed your eyes shut,
You hope that you were never here,
Sadly you are captured here,
Trapped in your own life, in your own fear,
Just like who they were in those previous years,
Options left only for you just to live there,
In a dreadful misery,
Or would you just rather die,
Die in the deep deep end of,
The sea of trees,
The suicide forest,
The Aokigahara?
