Life — what’s it about
Full of sadness, full of doubt
Will it ever be okay
Will there be days not grey
Despair and hopelessness
Could it be gone
Will I ever
Feel safe and strong
I’m tired now
Tired and spent
My body aches
I wasn’t meant
To live like this
In sorrow and pain
I want someone
To help me reframe
The past and what it did
To someone special
Who was just a kid
I’m crying now
It hurts so much
I don’t want it to be
Just a crutch
That holds me down
So I can’t be
All that I
Was meant to be.
