My Place
My world came crashing down on me and left me in the dark
I feel like I’m destined to be unhappy and just fall apart
I don’t know what I can do to bring the happiness back
What do I have to do to get myself on the right path
I pray and I beg to find my light in this awful place
But the more I hope and pray, the more things seem too far away to chase
It just seems like this place is not where I should be
I only want to be happy again, can’t you see
The things that bring me any type of happiness are fleeting and fast
I know I need to move on, but I am stuck in the past
I’ve turned into someone I don’t even know
My heart is full of feelings that I know will never go
Why is it the thing that makes me actually feel something is the one thing I can’t have
My heart couldn’t hurt any worse if it had been stabbed
I carry so much confusion, anger, and guilt that I hurt deep within my soul
I feel like I am carrying so much pain that I’ll never be able to let go
I don’t think I can be truly happy again when I don’t even know who I am
My heart has been ripped to shreds, and it feels like I’ve been damned
How do I fill this void that’s inside of me when I can’t even explain to anyone how I feel
Maybe I’m just crazy or happiness just isn’t real
I have realized that I can’t even bring happiness to others anymore
How did this happen to the loving girl I was before
I know God has a greater plan, but right now I can’t see the slightest piece of that plan
I’m trying to keep my head held above the water, but I’m not sure how much longer I can
I just want to find some peace in my life instead of this darkness and strife
That just seems too far to reach in real life
I’ve made my choices, and I know some were wrong
I just couldn’t help myself because I finally felt something that I hadn’t in so long
Unfortunately, for me it was just not meant to be
I just need these feelings to set me free
If I could just let go, I could try to move on
I’m terrified by then what light I have left will be gone
