I gotta do something against
The pressure I am putting on myself
I can't bear this weight on my chest
I need to break free and to rest.

Outside
Of all
Them
Senseless
EXPECTATIONS
Lauren Leal Jun 2015
All I want in life is to live, laugh and love
To simply look to the blue skies above
and have no worries, even for just a day
but life keeps taking close people from me away

I'm surrounded by death and loss
people tell me to turn to the cross
but that can't heal this pain
only time can help it not to remain

I'm coming to my last breath
inches from what I feel is death
it's just merely my heart crying
wondering why so many are dying

one, two, three, four, five
I count less close people that are alive
It's such a burden to contain
No matter how much I pass on, I'm always in the rain.

I wait for the day for that person to cross my path
That can calm my darkness's wrath
To simply hold me close to their heart
and to see the sun and the rain clouds rip apart.
I've lost many people that were close to me. It's a weight difficult to carry. I hope by sharing this is takes a piece off, even if it's just for a little bit.

— The End —
