"what other people think about me is none of my business"

All the people in pain act like it's quicksand
Like it's pulling them deeper and they cant get out
But in reality its just a road
A long one
A scary one
But just a road
And if those people ever thought to walk instead of crawl
To run instead of limp
They might find it's not so hard to make it
It's not so scary
The pain lessens as you go further
The tears cease
And your heart opens to hope
So for all the people who feel they live in pain
You're just too scared to break away
You're scared to take a chance
Scared to live
Just get up and walk
Hell, run down that road
See where life takes you
Take every turn you see and don't look back
Never look back
