The Definition Of Anguish

Anguish is an illusion, and we are just living it.
Being a young "adult" has taught me some things.
It has taught me in order to make it, I must be greedy.
I must swallow the blue pill whole heartily.
With a chase of tears, to wash it down.
It's good I learn this now, or i'll drown on the tears.

Anguish is my illusion, and I have accepted it.
Pushing myself at my hardest.
Making myself stress to the levels of a corporate CEO.
Knowing I must give myself to work and money,
Before I can give myself to another.
What's the saddest part, is that I must agree to this.

Anguish is a nightmare, and it's hiding in our closets.
Life is so unclear, and the closer I get to look at it.
The more indecipherable it becomes.
Is this what I signed up for?
I don't recall passing around a sign up sheet.
Did you?

Anguish is inside all of us.
Our minds, hearts, and souls.
Why perfect life when it could perfect us right..
Maybe it isn't because we need perfecting.
Maybe its because life is in anguish too.
