Im sleeping on the inside
With my eyes open wide
Inside I feel uninspired
But my eyes show my true side
I want to win,win,win!
And live life and not just exist
Get the boat to the shore
And the passengers out of the mist
Let them smile and not fear drowning
Expose my chest to the world
So they can witness the pounding
The will,the power,the strength
The fight that lives in me
The pain the fights,the life
Thats been stripped from
See me at my worst
And know me at my best
Know my journey through light
As I put my plight to death
For I am living,living before I cry
Letting it all hang out and stride
Because Im not just living to die
Im living to live
Live in living color
Living this life Ive been dealt
For their is no other
Watch,feel,see,hear my life
Know I was here
As if I lived twice
I want to really live
And not just exist
Is that to much to ask for?
Only if I had one wish!?
