The burden of Emotion
Feeling one too many things
A heart that's so entangled
In life's realities

Why won't my mind go silent?
Or let go of the weight?
Its wearing down my tired soul
Caught between the fear and ache

I close my eyes, accept it
What's the purpose of my pain?
Is this how things are meant to be?
Will I always be afraid?

I long to see the Sunshine
Because some days, I can't dream
I need the smile robbed of me
Back where its supposed to be
