Means To An End


What do you do when all of your fears come true?
When you want to run and hide
But the only place to be alone is in your mind
You take out a pen and paper & write as you cry
You write until your hands hurt & your tears dry
When you have no more tears to cry
You crumble it and burn it
In hopes you can burn the pain inside
But that doesn't kill it
The pain only subsides
And grows back stronger in time
Then you hit Replay and do it over again
Cause maybe just this time
It's the means to an end
