No longer hidden
Like a chameleon the demons disappear into the darkest corner of my mind.
They remain hidden until my mental state starts to decline.
Like a wolf howling at the moon.
I felt an impending doom.
Self isolation had me locked in my room.
I used to block out the rest of the world because the fear of being betrayed was overwhelming.
I spent most of my time dwelling.
When I should have been expelling the demons in my head.
Replaying all the things every therapist has said.
Change your perspective and your life will change. ...

Negativity is a recyclable
My mom was recently diagnosed with cancer,
Iím begging the heavens please God donít take her.
I feel like a failure.
I need another chance to make her proud.
Please help me get up off the ground .
Maybe what Iím missing is the person she was.
I came across an old picture of us,
and it stopped me in my tracks.
Iíd go back in time and be a better daughter.
Of course it would be easy to blame my biological father.
He didnít give up because you canít quit if you donít even try.
Great now Iím gonna cry.

No more looking back
This road of life can be painful.
I took off my rearview mirror,
so the past is out of sight.
I'm one more hit away from the devil,
so I guess I'm somewhere in the middle between right and wrong.

You watched me as I fell
You look at me and there's no way you'd see,
The darkness that I buried underneath.
The kindness in my soul makes it feel like I'm almost whole again.
Baby you'd never understand.
How long I felt broken and hopeless.
Look me in the eyes and tell me you cannot see,
the hurt inside of me.
I tried to hide it well
Trapped inside a cell of my own fears
There's no way out of here.
That's another fear.
I'll be trapped inside a broken mind for the rest of my life.
How could I ever...

There's no peace in the silence
When things calm down and the world goes quiet,
I can't seem to find any peace in the silence.

Drowning in the alcohol that they consume
He made letting go seem easy.
He doesn't even miss me.
I blame it on the whiskey.
Pictures are deceiving.
One day when he has a sober thought he'll be grieving.

Hush little baby keep your screams silent.
Hush little baby you better not fight it.
If you speak out you'll witness more violence.
So hush little liar don't say a word,
no one would believe you even if you could.

Just another dying star in the dark of night
I feel like a bright star amongst a world filled with light.
I'm engulfed by the darkness and no one even noticed my light going out.

Letting go of your happy ever after
Life is not a fairytale,
dreams were meant for sleeping and wishes upon the stars they don't come true.
If they did,
I would still have you.
I hope you find happiness and live the rest of your life,
with a loving wife.
I wish you all the best,
But a part of me used to long to be the key,
to your happy ever after.
When suddenly I wondered if I ever even mattered.
My faith in you was shattered.
I was reminded that life is not a fairytale, dreams are made for sleeping and...

You are worthy!
When you hear that word what comes to mind.
Is it a lost loved one or you that wants to end your life?
I know you hear this all the time, but I mean it when I say that you will be alright.
I can't fight your battles, but I promise to stand by you while you fight this war.
You are worth so much more, than the darkness in your mind.

Afraid to dream
Lying awake while the rest of the world is sleeping.
I'm afraid of what will show up while I'm dreaming.

Birthday candles with a flickering flame.
Holds a hearts most desirable wishes waiting to be claimed.
So hold your breath and close your eyes.
Don't say the words aloud for it should be a surprise.
So no one will know the painful truth of your hearts desires.
Be careful what you wish for, you never know what will transpire.
Buried within my broken heart's cavity,
There is a darkness hidden inside of me.
Being alive in the future was one thing I never thought I'd be.
Now here I am 7 years...
