    The rain is crying for me
    I wish my life would rewind
    And fly back to how it used to be
    And leave all my emotions behind
    So I could just be free
    But I'm just to blind
    And can't really see
    It never crossed my mind
    What's inside the real me
    I've ran straight into a wall
    and now my heart is bleeding
    You can never have it all
    My life is misleading
    Just when I think I stand tall
    My failure keeps repeating
    Getting to close is my down fall
    And I keep taking a tremendous beating
    At first things seem insignificant and small
    Then there's an instant waking
    That life is a constant fight
    And my heart, love, and sould is breaking
    To have emotions that I despit
    Because my mind and heart are aching
    Let me see the light
    As my scars burn real deep
    I have hop so I can once again believe
    For all I see is deciet
    And with this I have been decieved
    Hopefully this won't ever again repeat
    So I can forget my past to fall like an innocent leaf
    And survive my heart's giant steady beat.

    One_Love

    I've been restling with the same issues and now that i've noticed someone who seems to be of different calibur its hard to forget the bad experiences, but I'm gonna work on that. Thanks for telling it like it is.
