If I Hope Hard Enough.

I will lay down and go to sleep.
Never to emerge from my bed,
Never to steal the sunshine,
Never to live again.
Its horrible feeling this way,
Even more so when its you,
The way you treat me,
Makes me feel so sick of you.
I wonder if beyond this plain,
There is one that lights my way,
That will guide me into love,
And surround me every day.
There has to be something better than,
Hard work sweat and tears,
To make up an illusion,
Where you would not be there.
Lay me down so gentle,
Plant me as a tree,
So I can't runaway,
But can sway and be free.
