There is no joy, smiles or glee

I’m tired of the cloud that casts above me

There are lots of tears in my eyes

But only me that hears my cries


Here I lay in my bed

Fighting the thoughts inside my head

Numb and silent, as I stay

Letting the day just fade away


A happy thought is hard to find

 It’s not me, it’s just my mind

I wish I could just find my way

In this life without hiding away


My thoughts are hard my thoughts are strong

Wasting my life, without knowing its wrong

I want to change my life and help my soul

With all the love to make me whole

        Pain is a very wonderful thing to have. It teaches you that you're alive. Forward, sir. Good work.
