It is the sameness that drives me mad
The same day repeated that never varies
The persistent numbness that is my existence
Until feelings burst free leaving me in despair
I did not ask for this, it isn’t what I wanted
So many times I try to break free from my past
A never-ending nightmare that in my head replays
No matter how many times I try to escape it.
Don’t give me any of your dime store advice
If I could have chosen, don’t you think I would have?
I didn’t ask for the cards that have been dealt me
Your lack of compassion does nothing to save me
If gazing at the sunset; contemplating life
Was enough to change me, I’d never stop
If I could think those positive thoughts
Then I would do so all day long
Just because someone does not comprehend
Does not mean that it does not exist
So, please stop talking like you know
Because, you do not understand at all.
