There are times when the only thing I want to do is give up,

But for some reason, I have not fallen yet,

For some reason, I stand tall and fight

I do my best and I accomplish my goals

Not because I have to, but because I want to

I want to rise, I want to become something- someone.


There are times when I want to cry myself to sleep

I want to forget all my worries and give in to my lust,

I want to crumple my dreams and walk over them,

But I try, I try so hard

I try to become something I can be proud of-

Someone I can be proud of.


There are times when I want to forget, forget everyone

I cannot deal with other people’s issues, not even my own

I just want to forget all my problems, all my love, just all of me,

But I cannot, I cannot forget my life because it was given to me for a reason

And it is that reason I live, I live to become someone.
