I have always been that strong person
The one that will always be there
The shoulder to cry on and the ear to listen
But what happens when your world starts to fall apart?
It seems like you can't keep your head above water
Your drowning in your on fears
Why can't you break free like everyone else?
To Cut the chain that's is holding you down
Are you scared to let go and feel anything
The pain is real and it's there
Its not going away and it won't die
Are you going to let it kill you
Are you going to keep trying to hide it
The pain sometimes rolls down your face in a tear
And it stings with the cold air on your face
Is it a final release from the torture that you face?
For the anxiety of it all to slip away
For a split second for feeling alive and free
What happens when you try to end it all
Do you succeed in the pain when you leave everyone else... do you care what they think or how they feel
The thoughts that run through your head
That they whisper no one would care they wouldn't miss you at all
No one would even miss you over and over
All the more reason to do it right
All the more reason to let it all go and be free
But you grew up knowing the one eternal sin
And you would be damned for all eternity if you did
So you struggle on holding the pain and struggles in
Holding back the tears and all the fears that go with it
When will you ever be free and still be able to live
When can you live without fear and the question that keep being whispered in your ear
When will you hold on closer to the one that loves you most
When will you lean on them for total understanding and support
When you lay it all at his feet and start to be free
Then that is when your life is worth living
