Sunk

It never gets any easier, unbreaking your own heart which you broke in the first place by being you without reason, so stubborn and selfish...


Against the whole world

Even those you love

Constantly searching

for guidance above

But no one there can help you

my dearest friend

the answer to your loneliness

lies within

it may hurt at first

to admit it all at one time

but you have been a scared soul

lost in your prime

Afraid to reach out

or ask for a hand

to yank you free

from your pool of fainthearted quick sand

someone could have saved you

from being so blue

and helped you find

your individuality and truth

before you sunk so deeply

into the abyss of self hate

before love walked away

and all was too late

only if you'd have found

the courage to stand

and let someone in

to help you be a man

a man you used to be

so inspired, so bold

not a shell left tired

with a heart broken and cold.
