I’m not who I was
Therefore I can not become who I thought I should be
I have to overcome all these demons inside of me
Sometimes I want to run
As far away as the eye can see
Maybe distance from myself
Will be what finally puts my mind at ease
I contemplate on if it’s me or society
Am I holding on to the latch or do they hold the key?
All I know is my knees are getting weak
Can’t ask for hope much longer when the god I don’t pray to weeps
Don’t give up just yet, your destiny lies beyond the horizon’s trees
Don’t be too upset, who you are now is enough to conquer these
Emotions you feel are blessings in disguise to appease your will’s tide which will soon come crashing violently, it’s worth your hell’s ride
Just around the bend, your happiness subsides
Keep trekking until the end and you’ll stop wondering why
Everything has been rough around the edges
All you’ve wanted to do was hide
Soon you will emerge
Into your great blue empty sky
New beginnings will unfold,
No need to cry
Everything you hurt for was just getting you ready to fit your next mold
You will find,
There you will prosper without being told
Your stars will align
Keep doing the same old, it just takes time
Enlightened from all your past struggles
You’ll bring to new people what they were missing in others
Your mistakes, your misgivings, the sins you partake, and your absent lovers
Everything will make sense, once you find each other
What keeps you awake will soon be the reality you dreamt of
Your heart no longer at stake from your present bust
You will find where you belong
Keep treading along
Dreading the prolonged
Patching up what went wrong
You will heal completely
After all the harm is done
