To look deep inside
But to find no answers.
To hold on to hope,
Though it's slipping further and further.
To cry so many tears
With nothing to gain.
To go through each day
Feeling so much pain.
To fall asleep each night,
Praying to never awaken.
To never take a risk or follow a dream
Out of fear of being mistaken.
To stare out the window
With no change in expression.
To think of something so much,
It slowly turns into an obsession.
To ask for help,
But to have no one around to hear.
To suddenly realize,
You are what you fear.
