Sometimes the biggest battles, are the ones inside our own head.

As I wake, I reflect on the eyes in the mirror staring back at me.

As I wake, I stare into the abismal emptiness I see ahead,

dying to break the wall that conflicts my emotions.

As I wake, I let the emotions that control me,

wash over my head like rain drops.

As I wake, everyone stares at me with disappoint in their expectations.

As I wake, I don't see the life I once dreamt of coming for me,

instead a darker existance awaits me.

As I wake, I stand inches away from ending the pain that pulsates through my veins.

As I wake, I'm lost inside myself, 

fighting to gain the reason to come back.

As I wake, I don't see the reason for my existance to be a presedent in today's society.

As I wake..I never want to wake again.
