The world is a universe

By , Jacksonville, FL

You've been holding on too long


just sing this sad song

 

you don't know what's right or wrong


but you can't ask someone to guide you.
You're shattered inside,


you've got nothing in mind


Your smiles are lies
But can can't cry, can you?


The tears that don't drop


They always get clogged up


In the will to be strong


In the will to hang on


But you never get better


and you only get more clogged up


when are you gonna them go,oh?


And even when you're smilin', sometimes you feel like crying


Just a plea for help, since you can't find it yourself.


You want to scream out how you feel

 

To end this ordeal


You want someone to help


But you just think you can deal.


You're pathetic and weak, you belong at people's feet, every

tear shows just how much


you


can't handle


you know it's not true


but no one's telling you


becuase they don't know,


it's like you're a ghost.

 

They only see what you allow


You hold it all in, not sure how


and when the dam does break


you make sure that you're full of hate.


Just a real smile


Even once in a while


it's all you want, it's all you show and it's the fake ones that

huant

you.
Just some happiness


Is all you ever dream of


Not to be rich or famous


but to just know you're above


Above what you've been through


It never just tells you


It's always just huanting you


like you let it do.


Oh,oh,oh oh oh


Oh, oh oh oh oh


One day you woke up


The sun shone bright above


And a smile came across


you didn't feel like a disgrace


you didn't point out the flaws


you didn't act like anything you wanted was againt the law


you made some breakfast


for the ones you love


and they said, "Thank you much, we don't deserve your love"
Now that was new to you


you were sure it wasn't true


I mean it couldn't be


you was a disgrace to this family


But they didn't say they loved you


Like they do everyday


And it falls across your ears, no they said


They


didn't


deserve your love


As if it was this great, holy thing from above


As if you were this lovely person


Who never asked for a thing


Who always knew how to bring other's happiness


That's when it hit like a rock


you'd been seeing stars


when the world was a universe,


ya, the world is a universe.


So the very next day, you asked if a friend could stay over


To see
If they weren't repusled like you are by yourself


And they said,"Of course, you're the best friend I could ask for"


you asked them to repeat again


Why were you only hearing this now?

 

This couldn't be true, could it now


I mean, what do you want they want to do with you?


you've never said your opinion


afraid that it was wrong


you never sang a song


Becuase you were afraid your voice would be wrong


But here they are


Saying that they don't deserve you


Have you only been seeing what you only wanted to see?


And you saw


The person you liked


They walked, a smile on like,"Hey, how are you? I'm good, thanks for asking too."


And then said,"See you around later?"


You nodded, despite that your mind debated


and waved


and then walked away


feeling giddy


And you wish the feeling would stay.


You stop on your way home


let the breeze guide your drifting soul


You get stuck in a hole


You look up to a see a tree
Happily blooming


You take in a breath, and realize you can be


as much of yourself as you want to be


As you lean your tired back on the blooming tree


By comes a calming breeze, whispering to you comfortingly


All you can hear and see


Are the birds chirping happily.
