You say you know what the world means

When you never know your silent screams .

The world is pretty with all to do

Where everyday there is something new .


But tell me this

Why do you lie to yourself?

Why is that you never do what you want?

Are you lazy?

Are you scared?


A long time ago you made a promise

Yet here and now you’re only dishonest.

Tell me now that you’ll run towards that goal

Please come to peace with your wishful soul.


I see you have regret.

Will you carry on in this old manner?

Or will you dare to see the rising sun

Tell me this, you in the mirror

Are you a failure, or the newest winner?
