The Dream Seems Far Away.

Gotta wonder if we're in a lonely world,
Where nothing is as it seems,
Would it be better to give up the fight
Or fight for the dream

Cause, baby you opened my mind
Made me think about so many things
Got questions reeling every night
Life never seemed so extreme

And now I'm looking back
All the things that I said
Wondering if it's what turned you
Or what made you finally understand

That things in life
No matter how bad they seem
Can open up
And change everything

But you, I think you took it wrong
Because you're not you anymore
Maybe your eyes opened
To something that you weren't ready for

And how can you expect help
When you push us all away?
Everyone is ready to stand by you
But you act like you don't want us to stay

Maybe...it was my mistake
For opening your eyes
But stop holding it in
Because even the toughest cry

You have a really great flow through the poem that seems cut short in the end. Maybe add one more stanza? I feel as though you never reached your final point.

I guess I had alot of inspiration when I started this but the more I kept writing the words would just kinda fall off my tongue. I tried wrapping it up but I agree it feels very incomplete. (Thank you for the comment!)
