Looking in the mirror

I hate what I see;

My face full of fear,

Worry taking over me.

 

Scared of what I've become

But I'll keep pushing

Until my life is done.

 

Mistakes I've made

Things that have happened

I hide in the shade,

The shadows of my life.

 

Scared of myself at times

Alone in this world

Sometimes,

It's like nobody cares.

 

I put on a show

Put on a smile

Few try to see past it

to the tears.

 

I hide what I am

From others

Yet to myself

I only see what I've become.

 

I swear I'd never let it happen

Never slip away

But I was wrong

Once it starts, it's hard to stop.

 

You fall deeper and deeper

Into the hole

The only way to stop it

Is to find your rope.

 

Find your rope or reason;

The thing that will bring you back

Up to the surface, maybe farther

And never let it go

 

Let it pull you up

Then let it be your rock

To hold you in place

To help you hold your head high.
