Slowly drowning in sorrow
Wishing things better tomorrow
Feeling like I am in an ocean of doubt and despair,
gradually sinking and gasping for air.
Trying to keep my sanity and composure intact
out of fear of how those close to me, might react.
Fears of life bury themselves deep in my head
As I attempt to rest in my bed.
Since it seems like things will always be this way,
its frustrating because I have to go through it day after day.
Yet, when my quandaries are more than I can bare,
I can at least take comfort in those who really care.
You know who you are, and so do I.
Even if I don’t know, God knows why.
