Fishing for a thought
Of why I'm so distraught
Clinging to a life
That's not for me
It is for naught

Piling on the feelings
of all the ruthless dealings
in a story written
That is not for me
It is for naught

I have searched my soul
and seen I shade my gray with gold

Drowning deep within
of all my social whims
Stressing a smile
that is not of me
It is for naught

Coming back from masquerading
how I was delaying
letting down the clowns
that care for me
It was all for naught.
