Take for Granted

Lost in this cloudy haze/
Wondering if its just a phase/
Moments pass me by/
Leave me only asking why/

What’s the point of all this mess?/
Why am I in all this stress?/
Is there more to my life?/
I can hardly find the drive /

To push on through/
Like you all do/
Takes more from me/
Than you’ll ever see/

A simple task you take for granted/
A healthy life you were handed/
Nothing is the way it seems/
My inhibitions haunt my dreams/

Broken

Been beat down and broken inside/
Filled with emotions I just can’t hide/
Tears pour from tortured eyes/
Hiding behind a stream of lies/

Trying so hard to break me down/
Have me so low I won’t be found/
Lost in a world unknown/
Knowing only that I am alone/

Words spew from broken lips/
Reading from unwanted scripts/
Hatred seen amongst their eyes/
Left asking a train of whys/

True colors being shown/
If only I had always known/
Bringing myself back from dead/
Keeping their lies out of my head/

Finding my grip on reality/
Finding ways to set me free/
A love so strong and true/
Known to just a few/

If you dare to see/
The person I aim to be/
Take a look into my eyes/
Staring back through all those lies/
