We're all just average Joes and Janes
with our own problems
trying to figure them out
and find a way to solve them
some times it feels like this life isnt worth it
but it is,You just have to find a purpose
to live and then serve it
trust me, we're all in the same boat
sometimes you got to face the storm
and fight to stay afloat
we all have demons that we must wrestle to the ground
and for some of us, some of them will never stay down
wether its a voice inside the back of your head
that tells you your worthless and better off dead
or an emotion that forms inside of your mouth
and when you try to describe it
the words just won't come out
It could be a secret that you're struggling to hide
or the confusion you bottle up deep inside
it could be the lack of self confidence you display
or low self esteem, do you avoid eye contact by looking away?
or a reaccuring nightmare that you have in your dreams
when it feels like lifes falling apart at the seams
it could even be addiction that your struggling with
or the nervousness of your first kiss
maybe you're a cutter and you cover up your wrists
maybe your stuck in a fucked up relationship
maybe you were raised in an abusive household
maybe you lost some one and can't seem to let go
maybe you have a crush
and your to scared to share it
maybe you were touched
by one of your parents
maybe its side effects of your medication
maybe its the beating you took for your dedication
its something we share,its in every human being
the suffering...struggling to figure out what it means
sometimes there is no sleight of hand that can help
you just have to learn to deal with the cards that were dealt
we all have to learn to land before we learn to fly
we all have to learn to live before our time to die
