Please help me.
Make me see
the world in a new light
before I take flight
in route to a point of no return
where I will slowly and surely burn.

My only company will be the forced laughter
that came after
"I'm fine.  What are you talking about?"
which I blurted out
due to fear
of letting them hear
the thoughts inside
that I've tried so hard to hide,
along with the feelings of anguish
that are impossible to distinguish,
and the fact that I would have to admit
that my life is far from perfect.

Please save me.
Make me see
the world in a new light
before I take flight
in route to a point of no return
where I will slowly and surely burn.

I feel so alone
constantly wondering why I was thrown
into a bottomless pit
that has made me want to give up and quit.
I am consumed by anger
which makes me wish I was younger
because those were the good ole days
where I was innocent
and completely ignorant
of this messed up place
in which I am not strong enough to face.

Please save me.
Make me see
the world in a new light
before I take flight
in route to a point of no return
where I will slowly and surely burn.

Does anyone hear me?
This is not who I want to be.
A sad, self-conscious
girl who is constantly anxious and conscious
about her world that is falling apart.
A girl who just wants a fresh start,
but cannot get one unless she forgives
which makes her relive
all the memories she has to forget.
They are the reason she is in this state.
The one she absolutely hates.
