Any time I feel like this
I hold my head up high.
And I don't let it bring me down,
Because I know the end is nigh.
There are times I fall and cry,
and it almost keeps me down.
But in the end I'm helped back up
by a face that never frowns.
They've helped me through so many things
They've taught me how to stand up straight.
I've learned from them a multitude
I've learned how to create.
There's times when even melodies
Cannot raise my head
Times wherein I've nothing more
Than bitterness, and dread.
Uselessly I drift through seas
Of endless pain and drought
With only vague, dull memories
To carry me throughout
I've been to your doctors, I've seen your shrinks
I've been told time and again
That I've nothing wrong with me
That I've dreamed all where I've been.
Now I doubt if I will hear
Your calm voice speak to me,
I'm so far gone, so out of reach
So far I cannot see.
I take pills and liquid meds
To relieve myself awhile
But soon I wake, I cannot take
One more baseless trial.
I tumble down the rabbits hole
I am Alice, falling free
Eating shrooms and drinking tea
I am Alice- she is me.
