I thought I knew,

So, so long ago,

What path I was on,

And where I was headed.

But I've lost sight of that path,

And taken a new one.

It was my own choise,

I could have chosen different.

But I was too blind,

And these powers were too strong.

I was drawn to them,

Sucked in with no chance of escape.

They became my whole world,

And everything was fine.

The darkness was starting to fade away,

I and could see the path once again.

But then, the light was taken away,

And the darkness closed in,

And the path slipped from my sight.

The ground beneath my feet crumbled and fell away,

And I too fell.

And now I know what I have to do.

I have to make a choice.

I'm torn between two things,

Both of which I can't live without.

It's tearing me apart from the inside out,

And I'm losing my mind.

I'm starting to see things,

That aren't really there.

These voices in my head,

Always telling me what to do.

Sometimes I wonder,

What's really wrong with me.

Everyone has always expected so much out of me,

And it feel likes the weight of the world,

Has been placed upon my shoulders.

I'm not strong enough to hold it all up.

It will crush me in the end.

I'm not good enough,

I'm not strong enough.

I'm not what everyone thinks I am.

I know none of them really care.

If they knew the truth,

They would laugh,

And push me aside, leaving me behind,

Like all the others.

This weight is just too much.

How many times do I have to tell you,

I'm not strong enough.

I'm not good enough.

The weight of the world,

Has been placed atop my shoulders,

And I have no one to help me carry it.

They don't understand,

They'll never understand.

I'm through with trusting people.

I'm done with being hurt,

Because they grew bored of me.

Even though they don't care,

They still cling to me.

I know how they al feel.

I can see it in their eyes.

Why can't they just let go of me,

If they really feel that way?

If they reallyed cared,

They would let go.

Holding onto me,

Won't make me better.

If you love something,

Set it free.

Put me out of my misory.

Let it all end.

I can't take the pain anymore.

They're only making things worse.

They took it all away.

Everything I held dear.

Now all I'm left with,

Is the weight of the world.
