Sometimes it seems as if this world is too much

Always saying you ready to grow up

And then when you do

You ask yourself ‘What the hell was I thinking?’

Dealing with school is bad enough

Whether it’s being the prettiest or the smartest

To being the meanest or nicest

To dealing with student loans

To applying or scholarships

Sometimes it seems as if this world is too much

Always turning the news on to see something tragic has happened

Either someone’s blown this up or that up

Or a little girl has gone missing and usually turning up dead

It’s always drama on the box

Where’s the positive stuff

Set that out for everyone to hear

Where’s that hope everyone’s always talking about

Or those promises that seem to get forgotten and lost in the wind

What is with this world today?

*Sigh*

Sometimes it seems as if this world is too much

Love is undervalued

People run from it more than they run to it

Hearts breaking easily

And lives being shuttered in a snap

Sometimes it seems as if this world is too much

But this is the only chance to live it

The best must be made from the positives

And the negatives shall die down

Maybe this world isn’t too much

And maybe it is

But only HE knows that and always shall
