Sometimes I can’t find the words

That fills my messy head.

Can’t find the effort to smile

Or get out of my bed.

The world just sometimes feels like I don’t belong,

And even when I make the effort,

A smile just doesn’t last long.

I could pretend with all my might

That I am the happiest I can be.

Surrounded by the world, it seems

Lonelier than it could ever be

Not sure why I’m here

Not sure what may be the answer.

Not sure if I’m really keen

To spend another day here,

Living this dreadful dream.

But I must find some courage,

Find the fire in my heart

And find a love for life again,

And I know where I shall start.

I’ll walk among the forest

And feel the crisp sea breeze

And lay among the meadow

And listen to all the bees.

I’ll figure out the mayhem

And gaze at all the stars

And dance at every sunset

With a smile inside my heart.

Learn to live before you die!
