"Eberythong happens for a reason"

I scream so loud,
but no one hears my voice

I walk this lonely dark road,
because I have no choice

Tears streak my cheeks not drying to last
flowing down my neck, catching at my shirt

My footsteps fall as a sound of the past
my heart thumps pain through my body, leaving me to hurt

With every step, I leave alittle bit of me behind
Little to nothing even left inside

Cold air is what I feel, shivers running up my spine
so high up, its the middle where I wish to reside

Such a long journey to the end
Happiness is somwhere that I must find

Not finding it here, the next step is where it depends
Waking up to see this is the end of my line

There is always a ranibow after a hurricane
Always the sun after it rains

The clouds havent departed, giving up is my shame
The darkness englufs me, traps me with chains

Never changing always pulling me under this slump
My hands pull me over that cold bar

I look over the side and I finally jump
Letting my last beats of blood
flow through my heart

Waiting for the end for the flood
and for my happiness to start.
