The Struggle Grows


I try to think about the future,
But never get a clear picture
Everything is so messed up in this life
So I just keep swallowing this knife
Keeping everything tucked away
It seems like the only way
No one will ever understand
I just listen to all their demands
The cuts grow deeper and the days grow longer
But nobody sees it, to them I’m getting stronger
Days bleed into nights
And I am tired of putting up a fight
All my tears have fallen
Now all I am is forgotten
Left in this world all alone
To never again be known
I can’t keep putting up a fight
The fear consumes me by night
Heartbroken that you are gone
Now it’s a struggle to even hold on
