A Stopped World

Is this it?
Is this what I must learn to deal with?
Never thought
That my world could come to this halt…

I’ve been told
Ever since I was little
Even when I grow old…

I can make my dreams come true,
I don’t know if that is right.
My dreams have yet to take flight.

Is this all?
Is this all I have left in my heart?
You have taken away the biggest part
Of my soul,
My being,
My hope,
My world,
And my control…

I have to be strong and brave,
From the moment that’s what i’ve been.
But I have changed a lot since then.

What I’d give
To return
To that hope that I had gathered
And to think
I believed
That I had a fighting chance…

Is this me?
Is this the way my life shall be lived?
Wondering if my dreams have just
Slipped away?

But for today,
All I can really do
Is get on my knees and pray.

But don’t you know how you’ve hurt me?
Now I will never see
My dreams

So for now…
I wait…
