Beyond the Horizon

I feel the shade of the horizon
Like a boulder on my back
It's getting heavier and heavier
It's trying to break me but I haven't cracked

Trying to hold together pieces
As the stones begin to fall again
All has me thinking and wondering
What will happen next

I try to see the sun in the horizon
But everyday there's a new cloud
From the clouds more rain falls
Sometimes trying not to make a sound

Quietly and steadily
That's how this fog rolls in
Clouding my perspective
Starting to give in

I want to look forward to tomorrow
Look forward to a brighter day
But every time I'm told the forecast
My heart breaks at the sound of rain.
