Pointless Race

Thinking of all that could go wrong
My mind has been stretched to its limit
I've been running this race far too long
I'm tired of being the only one in it
For once let me lay down and rest
I'm weakened from this relentless fight
My heart is beating out of my chest
Nothing ever seems to feel right
I put on a smile and laugh the pain away
But all it is is a mask that hides what's inside
I tell myself tomorrow will be a better day
But within me I know I just lied
Nothing ever seems to get better
I'm stuck in this never changing black hole
So here goes another single letter
With an engraved piece of my soul
