My struggles with religion,life,solitude,anxiety,uncertainty,growing up and life.

With my eyes blackend from this sleep deprivation

Pondering over my mind and it's war and peace situation,

I just need you by my side

At least until the skies clear and these waves finally subside,

I have this cringing feeling that i'm a ship just short of land

With smiles and possibilities if I could get my toes into the sand,

With my feet hovering over the ground and my head in the clouds

I hope you can see me in this light..I hope I can make you proud


Even if thomas asks to see my hands at the gate

When this time arises and I have to bare a grin to seal my fate,

I know that I won't sell myself short

I know it's what i'm looking for

This anxiety to overbearing..

Please help me..


I notice in the sidewalks the cracks resemble a timeline

Between the ants struggling to eat I can relate as if it were mine,

Trying to make the best out of a callused point of view

I feel I was once an optimist then my vision went askew,

I've been beating the same path of body deforming destruction

I wish I could have stopped myself, I wish life came with instructions,

So I'll sit here and collect and try not to be bitter

If my tears were trash they'd catch in the wind and get caught up in the litter..

The second verse shows you are an artist. The visuals play the fiddle of someone who understands from a creative standpoint. A musician, a dancer, or a person who can draw ansd paint like me.
