Sick.

Sick of pulling that mask on again today.

Sick of playing the part of the girl they expect to see.

 

Tired. 

Tired of trying so hard to find the right way. 

Tired of fighting so hard against the person I don’t want to be. 

 

When did “happy” become a stranger?

When did everything become so serious?

When did my joy get replaced by anger?

When did this gloom descend upon us?

 

Confused. 

Confused by the gloom that I feel in my bones.

Confused why I feel this way again and again

 

Angry.

Angry that I feel so alone.

Angry that everyone is just as lost as I am.

 

When did we forget how to feel content?

When did we end up fighting ourselves?

When did we forget what being happy meant?

When did we become but hollow shells?

 

Fed up.

Fed up with living in this gloom.

Fed up with watching everyone I love drown in their own sorrow.

 

Determined.

Determined to bring back the smiles to the room

Determined to change this world, not waiting for tomorrow

 

When did we give up control?

When did we decide to let the sad win?

When are we forget our soul?

When will we begin again?

 

All the sorrow and the sadness

Hanging like a shroud in so many minds

Let’s break out of this blackness

Gotta lift the blinds to change our minds

 

If I could change a single thing

The flowers, the sun, the joys of life

I want people to see again.

To be happy and let go of our strife.
