I want to be heard.

ALL I WANT IS TO BE HEARD

NOT A VOICE IN THE UNKNOWN
I DON'T WANT ATTENTION
I WANT TO BE LOOKED AT
I WANT TO BE HEARD
I WANT TO BE FELT
I WANT TO NOT BE ALONE
FOR ONCE
BUSY BUSY BUSY
IM SORRY, I KNOW, DON'T WORRY
BUSY BUSY BUSY
I KNOW YOUR TRYING!
YOUR NOT TRYING
IT'S AS IF EVERYTHING SHOUTS AT ONCE IN MY HEAD
THERE'S NO WAY TO STOP IT
THEY SAY, GO ON, TALK ABOUT IT
BUT WHEN YOU FINALLY DO THEY LOOK AT YOU LIKE YOUR CRAZY
EVERYTHG YOU'VE EVER FELT IS POURED OUT ON THE FLOOR
BUT OH NO, THERE'S MORE,
YOU HAVE YET TO OPEN that DOOR
YOU TELL YOURSELF IT'S FINE
EVERYTHING WILL HEAL WITH TIME
BUT DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS PASS
IT ALL SEEMS TO JUST BITE YOU IN THE ASS
IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OVER AND DONE WITH
THIS CONSTANT FEAR OF NOT BEING GOOD ENOUGH
ALTHOUGH YOU TELL YOURSELF YOUR FINE
ARE YOU REALLY.
LOOK THEM IN THE EYE.
DON'T LOOK AWAY.
DON'T HIDE IT FOR ANOTHER DAY.
DAMMIT WHY CAN'T YOU THINK STRAIGHT
"EVERYTHING USED TO BE GREAT"
WELL DON'T THINK OF THAT. 
THINK OF WHAT'S TO COME.
AND DON'T TELL ME YOUR FINE HERE
THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO BE SEEN
DON'T YOU GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS
DON'T THINK ABOUT THE PAST
ALTHOUGH THST SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY THING THAT LASTS
THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFE
WHERE YOU WANT IT TO GO
DON'T WORRY ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE
FOR ONCE WORRY ABOUT YOURSELF
DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.
GO AHEAD, TRY TO FIND YOU.
