There’s No One Here
There's no one here to dry my tears but me
On the search for something greater but its like I can never see
What will make me content?
Why is my heart filled with such unrest?
Is it a woman, my kids, money or sex?
I can't even see tomorrow & I’m afraid of what's next!
The hopelessness creeps in & it grabs a hold of me tightly
Fatigued during the day & Insomnia comes to haunt me nightly
Sleep the day through with no motivation or drive
If death is my alternative then I don't want to be alive
I cure my loneliness with isolation & I’m easily annoyed
If sadness is all I feel & there's no other emotions or joy
Then God why have you forsaken me?
I can't seem to get away from this dark hole that has taken me
So here I am all alone on the earth
Everyone tells me to keep my head up & that I'm of worth
But if you haven't been where I've been then you will never know
What I've gone through & the feelings of the unknown
The emotions, the hurts, & the pains
The humanity, the insanity, the tragedy, the games
So as I look up to the sky & say one last prayer
I hope you hear me & God, I hope you're there
