My Sorrow

I dream, I twist and turn in my sleep
I try to look away
But all I can do is weep
Everyone has their own share of sorrow
But mines is so great I might never see tomorrow
Living life a second at a time
I can’t fight this regret anymore
I feel like I’m losing my mind
If this is how life is I don’t want to live any longer
No matter how much I try the pain just keeps getting stronger
Trying to find my way back but I keep going astray
My mom keeps saying “have faith, all you can do is pray”
I’ve been praying mom but nothing good is coming my way
What can you say to that
I doubt it’s anything more than what I’ve been saying to myself
Who I am in life is just another book on the shelf
Waiting for someone to read my pages
Someone once said “Take a leap and hope to god you can fly”
Well I tried it once and I’m still falling
Hoping someday I’ll die…
