I want to leave this place
Just to get away and feel the breeze upon my face
And just be myself
By leaving this place behind and everything else.
As I sit here in this chair
I feel this emptiness inside my soul
Praying that questions will be answered for the stories in my life untold
As I stare out my window thinking about my past
I think of how I used to be and why it didn't last
Everyday I walk around with a fake smile
Knowing that the pain inside of me will hurt only for a little while
Sometimes when I'm alone I want to cry
And other times I want to crawl inside myself and die
As I think to myself
I feel that I will never grow up, never containing my insanity
Because of the thoughts and criticism of the people around me
One day I will understand
The Lord's Plan
That He has for me
In this world of hatefulness and cruelty
And let go of the pain that is holding on inside me.
