You Bend Until You Break MAG

You stood where no one can see you,
Where no one would notice you.
Were you wishing someone would call out your name,
So you could walk over and feel wanted?
Are you discontented?
Have you been yearning to belong?
You felt like your world was caving in,
Yet you would never admit it, although I could see it.
You have all these fears and no one to tell them to.
Is this what you call pain?
Is this the point where you’re finally going to claim your life back?
Just gather yourself together and leave.
There’s nothing here worth saving anyway.
Your world is caving in and I can see it.
I see the pain you’re in.
There’s nothing left now, trust me.
Get up and reclaim what’s yours.
Your world is caving in, but I’m here to help you.
I’m here to fight with you.
