Is It for the Best?

Sadness and Stress, is it for the best?

Consuming my world in a false happiness.

Is that what I need to really succeed?

I don't feel any joy, all I feel is greed.

My life shakes and shatters and everything that really matters,

Disappears or it is fake. It just keeps getting sadder.

I wish that my dreams were big bright beams

To light up the dark or drown out my screams.

Does this journey get longer? Will I get stronger?

I don't know if I can go on any longer. 

Life should be all perky and good.

At this point, however, I don't see how it could.
