Do I Have to Beg?

It has always been easy

To tell people you're alright

Rather than explaining why you're not

Why you feel like your whole life's a crap

Why you can never grasp the light in sight

Why everything gets dimmer and darker

And the only thing you can see is pitch black

It's as if you swam so deep

So lost that you can't go back

To the surface where

The reality is unfair and unjust

And everyone holding you hostage of your past

All I ask is a life of green and peace

Still can't have it

Even with a million please

I like it. For some reason it reminds me of being tossed around by a wave and hitting the bottom as you cannot tell up from down.
