The Truth of Life
Take my thoughts and throw them away,
I just want one peaceful day.
Take my troubles and kiss them goodbye,
As I know longer want to live this lie.
I may be selfish but I need some good,
All I wish is to feel loved.
Yet my senses burn in an ever wrathful fire,
Allowing the bad to climb ever higher.
Forever kicked down to the ground,
I take it and take it without making a sound.
I lie, helpless and lost.
Why does happiness always come at a cost?
All I want is the answers.
Yet I know not the questions to ask.
Nor even this worlds future intentions.
Therefore, do not permit me to be so brazen.
There just don’t seem to be consistency,
And relationships have lost all intimacy.
No one tells you the truth about life,
Its pain, its hurt and unrelenting strife.
The strain it takes upon the heart,
Breaks a person’s faith apart.
It tears down the walls of trust and hope.
And people wonder why you can’t cope.
I look to find a point to it all,
I want to know why it is that I feel so small.
The pages of this journey are often unwritten,
To feel anything is totally forbidden.
So how is it we survive such a tale?
When we are constantly being set up to fail.
From the moment we set foot on this earth,
Someone’s judging us and setting our worth.
Will I ever get to know,
The truth to this life, or is it all just for show.
