the light at the end of the tunnel
By: T

there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel they say ...
when the going gets tough the tough gets going they say ...
these antics are constantly being repeated.
inexperienced people saying what other inexperienced people have always said.
but it’s obvious they haven’t gone through what i have 
if they actually believe what those inexperienced people say.
i’m always surrounded by happy people ...
their unreal smiles seem to possess a captivating feeling ...
those enamoring feelings ...
i wonder what is enabling them to feel this way ...
why can’t i feel this way ???
i look in the mirror every day and i hate what i see ...
i walk past all these happy people and i hate that they’re happy ...
because i try day in and day out to feel that way.
but to no avail ...
things just don’t happen to go that way.
i don’t want to feel sad but it’s hard to not feel this way when i feel like the world has something against me.
because one minute i’m okay ...
i'm smiling ... 
i'm laughing ...
i'm content with the way life is for me.
and the next minute those feelings are stripped away.
nothing remains but a stinging pain like a bandage being ripped off my skin.
there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel they say ...
when the going gets tough the tough gets going they say ...
but what they don’t know is that this tunnel i’m in is never ending ...
i see nothing but darkness ...
what they don't know is that the tough isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
this tunnel is a hell in disguise ...
