Just There…

 

 

Ever been just there?

You weren’t in any other place,

Just standing by yourself in a room full of doubt

And no one knew your situation.

 

 

Ever been just there?

The smile forced upon your face,

Your feelings spinning around and about

You were without salvation.

 

 

Ever been just there?

Feeling like this was a loser’s race,

Everything so sad that you just wanted to shout

This is your damnation.

 

 

Ever been just there?

So young trapped in an older case,

Your tears felt almost as if suffering a drought

You’ve given in to frustration.

 

 

Everyone knows your story;

You were just there.

They all know your sadness;

You were just there.

Deflated without the glory;

You were just there.

It drove you to madness

How you were just there…
