Empty souls and broken hearts,
Carrying our bodies through the day
Dragging our legs even when they beg to rest
Holding back the tears of the same eyes that hide secrets
The same eyes that once looked deep into the eyes of another.
Mind full of memories
Heart full of scars
Scars that have not healed yet.
Regrets, regrets, regrets,
You’ll lose your sanity at their doors
Guilt will consume you until there is nothing left of you anymore
The past haunts us no matter how hard we try to let go.
They will tell you what you already know
And you’ve been fighting for so long
Giving up crosses your mind everyday but you know it’s not an option,
Not for you anyway,
You’ve endured so much to give up now
But you’ve been fighting for so long that you have to pretend to be okay
You have to pretend like you beat your struggles
You have to gather all the strength in your body and smile and nod when tears and screams are trying to escape.
