    Pen in hand
    Paper in front
    Thoughts in mind
    Feelings to confront
    Friends surround
    Words console
    Love abounds
    And God’s in control

    Guess I should write
    About happiness
    Guess I should sing
    About my test
    Guess I should testify
    Of how I’m alive
    Guess I should not cry
    Because I’ve survived

    But just can’t
    Go on like I’m not afraid
    I just can’t
    Go on like I’m okay
    Oh I just can’t
    Go on like everything is fine
    I just can’t
    Accept that I’m slowly dying

    And…

    Honestly
    That’s killing me more
    Cuz I can’t see
    Why I feel a need for more

    I got my family
    next to me
    And I got friends
    That know that I’m in need

    Don’t even know
    Why I’m writing this down
    I want to stop
    But my heart won’t let me down

    I feel so lost
    Don’t know what to do
    I feel like I’ve lost
    The joy I used to…

    The joy I used to have
    When I was never sad
    The feeling of love
    From everyone and above
    The fullness of my heart
    Not empty by loss of art
    Cuz what I’m feeling now
    Has got me strung out
    And I feel as if I’m suffering
    I CAN’T take the suffering…



    ANYMORE…

    i just wrote some more to this and i wanted to post it...

    its just a stanza


    most people think i should be happy
    by being alive and able to be laughing
    but my laughter is empty and hollow
    swallowed by unamounting sorrow
    i know they think this is the best for me
    but i think of it as the down fall of me...
