My Life

Sat, 11/22/2014 - 23:07 -- 1001635

I gave what I had to give, but it's not enough

I did what I had to do, but life is tough

the uphill battle I have to climb every day

silences everything I have to say

I want to live life in my own way, anyway

without all my pieces falling out, without a doubt

I wish to be ubroken, unchanged

instead I am broken, in chains

I'm a fool who confides in you

letting you tell me what I'm to do

it's time to meet my own demands

but my hands are small and my grip is weak

I try to hold on be strong not wrong

I try to pour my soul into a song

but the edges overflow and I find myself drowning

in fate, I'm late, for Heaven's sake

why is there no absence of my mistake

How could my questions be unanswered

and my answers be questioned

my life is a joke, I choke on pride

I gotta run, but I cannot hide

all these feelings fill my mind

it's as if I'm already out of time
