Expectations to fill

The desire for peace

A need for motivation

To keep me from this depression


Success is the only key

To my wildest dreams

It’s the only thing that helps me see

A path through all these screams


I need to stay sane

For the sake of them

I can’t deal with this chest pain

The thought of being condemned


And although everything seems dandy

I need something to keep me at ease

Anything to trick me into being happy

While I tread this journey to find peace
