Yesterday's Feelings

living in the shadow of my youth
I once felt like I could go forever
but my eyelids got heavy
and my heart went hollow
filled my mind
with resentment and sorrow
not knowing if I'd ever be ok
still waiting for the answer
searching for it in my past
till then I just keep telling myself...
 
I'm not dead
I'm just sleeping
no need to worry
I'm still breathing
one day I'll wake up from this dream
standing back on my own two feet
stronger than yesterday

 
I drew the line
gave up on the world
still I look out the window
wondering what I left behind
maybe I quit before I reached my full potential
so many words were lost along the way
felt a million miles away from everything
convincing myself it was peace
when it was just seclusion
so I sit with these words in my head...
 
I'm not dead
I'm just sleeping
no need to worry
I'm still breathing
one day I'll wake up from this dream
standing back on my own two feet
stronger than yesterday

 
one step at a time
nothing ever comes easy
still I get up everyday
because the alternative is scary
with a world full of people
can't relate to any of them
or maybe they just can't see
how I suffer like they suffer
I'll just lay my head back down  
until I wake up in a better place
