It broke my heart that I worked so hard, and for what,
Every door I thought I had opened just slammed shut.
Wake up and try again another day,
So much inside I just couldn’t say.
So much forcing me under I couldn’t get ahead,
So much pain in the tragic life I had lead.
Drowning in sorrow and fighting for air,
Everything I planned, just wasn’t there.
Darkness surrounded me and no light could I see,
All I ever wanted was just to be.
Another fairy tale the world tried to help me hold,
No one in the world could imagine a life so cold.
And where could I go from here, and how does I get away,
From a life I never imagined I’d ever stay.
