Sadness overwhelms me,
Sorrow swallows me whole.
It builds up inside of me,
Burning a deep, dark hole.
Oh, how i yearn to just fly away,
Away from this world,
To some place where i shall be able to stay,
Peaceful and uncurled.
Unable to speak,
Unable to move,
People think I am meek,
But don't know i disapprove.
Bottled up emotions,
Swirling in my brain,
Can be seen in my actions,
No matter how much i try to feign.
Where is happiness,
When you need it the most
Why at these times, does gladness,
Seem to be at the other end of the coast.
Hope seems so far away,
As i wonder,
If another cheerful word, i will ever say!
