This is the beginning of your day
Life is more intricate than it seems
Always be yourself along the way
Living through the spirit of your dreams.

I suppose in times like these,
its hard to stay alive,
But no one has called life a breeze,
so grab on if you want to survive.

Love is such a simple word,
that holds something so deep,
some may say its absurd,
but to me its just a leap.

To them what is love,
why don’t they all want me,
they merely push and shove,
and now I just want to be.

Continually looking all around,
for that perfect guy,
soon to stumble to the ground,
never understanding why.

Every time I find potential,
I love him for a while,
then I discover he’s missing something essential,
and I summon up a fake smile,

By then hes long gone,
pushed away by my insecurity,
I suppose I just played him like a pawn,
comforting me momentarily.

I use and use,
eating up the kindness from their heart,
in the end ill probably just lose,
and have to begin again from the start.
