A troubled mind of broken thoughts
to ponder as you lay;
drowning in an open sea
of sorrow every day.
Console your thoughts with talks of love
and what you hope will be,
to break away from all you've known;
a harsh reality.
Breathing, sinking, drowning, thinking
you can never know.
Flying, crashing, lying, thrashing
drags you down below.
With hatred flowing through your veins,
it's easy to forget
while those who love and care for you
become your biggest threat.
Dig your nails into your skin
to scrape away the truth.
Overdose and clench your teeth
to throw away your youth.
To find yourself, you must restore
the twinkle in your eye.
So let your head fall in your hands
and find the strength to cry.
