The Way I Feel

I used fake laughter to keep from crying.
You say to me, "Cheer up, you are okay."
You ask me, "Why can't you just keep trying?"
And I say, "I try and try everyday."
Being sad everyday is just child's play
'Til you find yourself on the floor screaming
Like a child at nightmares when he's sleeping.
I can't sleep at night so in bed I lay.
Being sad is now just a part of me;
So lost, I feel like I'm alone at sea,
Except there is no one that can save me.
How long must I go through all this madness?
This weight, how heavy can it really be?
Someone please bring me light in this darkness.
