if you do what uve always done, you'll always get what youve always gotten

How long have I been in these storms, to long it’s been for
What’s getting harder is the feeling to try, with these waters crashing over my head
I come up for air but the waves push me down and tell me to not stick around
The longer I stay under, the more I question who I wanna be
If I could only see the light shining above me
Its rays could shine from the surface acting as the pathway to my soul
A way to make me feel whole
I will walk on water to you will catch me if I fall
To look into your eyes and know everything will be alright
I know you didn’t leave me out here to drown on purpose, I wasn’t your plan
But somehow I ended up ten feet under and upside down
Barely surviving has become the norm when living under the surface
If I could just see you everything would be alright
This darkness would turn into light

"Don't cry that it's over, smile because it has happened."

the title of this poem was what originally caught my eye. but from the very first word i was hooked all the way up til the end! i can really see the feeling in this, and how much thought you put into every word.

you can rate/comment on some of my work, too if you'd like. great job on this! keep writing!(:
