What Others See

What happens when life knocks you down, but you don't want to get up?
How many more times can you simply survive the day?
Unhappy, indifferent, no desire to live,
This is supposed to be easy, get over it.
When you grasp at reason why you should simply continue to exist,
You feel nothing when other would be pissed.
This is supposed to be easy, get over it.
You try to convey it, loneliness, hopelessness, wanting to end it all.
But it's brushed off, subject changed, stop making this about you.
This is supposed to be easy, get over it.
No motivation, no drive, just being alive makes you feel guilty.
Disappointment is only what you feel it's what you are.
Trying to talk to people about it seems useless and futile.
This is supposed to be easy, get over it.
Life itself is a chore, why keep going? 
Not caring to see the next day is normal now.
But life isn't complicated, you can do whatever you want.
It's silly to say you don't want to live anymore.
So stop saying that and go be happy.
This is supposed to be easy, get over it.
