Moment of Truth

Everything is falling apart around me
My mind is filled with lies
I start looking for the beauty  
And try to keep teardrops from my eyes
 
The room starts spinning
I'm locked in chains
I look to start winning
I try to keep myself from going insane
 
I sense some sort of magic in the air
I sense a presence coming close
I try to run from this nightmare  
I start to lose all my hopes
 
I fight for all I got
I tear open the cage
I break out and am now not caught
I start to fill with rage
 
The night casts a shadow
The sun starts to shine
I look through the window
And tell myself I am fine
 
I think I better start living
I better start to face the truth
Life isn't going to start giving
Until I carve out my own booth
 
Every day I'm running  
I can't seem to find my way
I need to be more cunning
And make sure to listen to what I say
 
The future scares me
Sometimes I don't want to wake up
I'm stuck in the sea of vulnerability  
Until I take a drink from that cup
 
I'm tired of being nothing
I'm tired of everything going wrong
I'm going to make myself into something  
And show myself that I belong

I am not someone who knows who they are or what they will become but I hope to find out. My whole life I have been scared. I'm scared of failure, scared of success, scared to try something new. I'm stuck in a box that I don't have the key for. I am going to try to break out. I'm sure people know that feeling. You try to find your place in this world. All we can do is learn from our mistakes and to keep fighting for what we have.
