Don't Worry

Breathe
Breathe

Trapped in my blanket and I cannot get out

Protecting myself from whatever is out there

My mind is free while my hands are numb

Lying here may be my only salvation

To wake up now will only devastate

A plastic life which I am trying to create



If life were a dream, it wouldn't be so damn hard

That is the illusion my fantasies are

Wasting away with so much to give

If life were a dream my fantasies live



I am still trapped in my blanket yet now I fight to break out

Ignoring myself and whatever is out there

Not giving in or giving up to fate

The gates are closed so it is not too late

To grasp onto the fiction will help me realize

I am now waking up to a new sense of life



If life were a dream, it wouldn't be so damn hard

That is the illusion my fantasies are

Wasting away with so much to give

It is time to awake and begin to live



What say you?

When life gives you lemons do you:
