Misunderstood

Can’t speak
Feeling so weak
Trying to be me
But also wanting to be understood.

Nothing I do makes sense
Yet everyone acts like it does.
Always on the fence
Just end up waiting
Right in the middle
Of taking action
And being a doormat.

I’m Just Fine

Why can’t I stop before it’s too late?
I’m always going well beyond my limits.
Stomach feels like it’s bleeding through.
But I see nothing.
I feel nothing
But an invisible pain.

I cry cry cry
But no one knows the struggle inside.
I fall apart
But no one ever sees it for what it really is.

Alone in my own world
Even when I try to let everyone in.
It just doesn’t work that way.
Sometimes I think I’ve made a big mistake.

Until I hear that I’m an inspiration
And then my eyes light up.
Feeling like I’m on fucking fire
Yet I’m burning in the flames of my own life.
Just trying to get by
Just trying to see the light
But it always seems to be passing by
As I look up to the sky
Wondering why?
Why? Why? Why?

One day I’ll fly
But until then I’ll cry
Just waiting and wishing
To mean it when I say I’m just fine.

Who Am I?

Who am I?
I am nothing
But I want to be something
Even when you tell me I already am.

I’m drowning in my own filth again
Trying to get unstuck here
But it feels like too much work
If only I knew my own worth.

I’m really good at hiding
When the noise gets too loud
But when it gets too silent
I feel like I’ll go crazy if I don’t make a sound.

Right or wrong
It doesn’t really matter
As long as I’m not lonely
As long as there’s love you can show me.

I’ll never let you in
Because it’s already too much.
I guess being by myself
Will have to be enough.

Breaking Free

Tired of running from the truth.
Feeling so broken down and bruised.
But I have to let myself be free.
Release the fear built up inside of me.

It’s going to take a lot of patience.
But all I’ve been doing is waiting.
So I give myself the compassion I never got.
Reminding myself of how long I’ve fought.

Living on the edge of death is never easy.
I have to rid myself of the lies they feed me.
Take back that which was taken from me.
Close my eyes so that I can finally see.

Keep Going

There’s nothing but madness
Inside this life that I lead
But I still find myself waiting
In the forest of dreams

Time is never my friend
But I still treat it like a god
Because I know that in the end
It will be the only thing I got

My eyes they bleed
My throat is sore
My face is flushed
But I keep on searching
For something more

It’s never enough
But the words keep spilling out
Is it because I have hope?
Or is it because I can’t cope?

I guess it doesn’t really matter
As long as I expose every vulnerable piece
Even if I feel weak
Afraid to be seen
