    Smile or Sigh

    Have you ever had your joy stolen away
    By something someone does or chooses to say
    You’re in the right mood and ready to go
    And for some unapparent reason the answers no
    Why oh why can’t they understand or comprehend
    The fact that I must be free
    Tired of having to have clarity
    For all my actions and thoughts
    I have gots to get out of this place
    And catch the dreams I haven’t been allowed to chase
    I wonder if there’re still there waiting
    Anticipating the arrival of the one who will achieve
    Or have they decided to leave
    And take residence elsewhere
    Why must life be so unfair
    Full of injustice
    Why am I stuck in this
    Situation always asked for an explanation
    But never real answers delivered
    Why must I be a member
    Of this dysfunctional society
    Why isn’t there a variety
    Of choice for I
    What’s holding me back for spreading my wings and begin to fly
    What will be my legacy when I die
    Will it be a smile or a sigh
