I thought that I could reach them
The moments that I’d dreamed of
That’s why I walked confidently
While holding onto some blind faith
I thought that if I didn’t give up and keep going
That if I’d given it my all,
I’d see stars before me
And that I’d finally accomplish my dream
I prayed everyday as I only ever looked forward and ran
And hoped that there would be a light at the end of this dark, dim tunnel
I was consumed by hope and ran and ran
Yes, I wanted to see that bright light
It really felt like it wouldn’t be much longer now
And that it was within my reach
So why, why do I still feel like I’m in the same place and that I’m lacking?
In order to run again, I have to endure and get back up
But there are so many parts of reality that are so hard to bear
It feels like I’m being forced off my feet onto the ground
I’m trying my best to hear it because I don’t want to lose
And this is a dream that I want to sacrifice everything in order to achieve
So why is it getting harder for me as i try harder?
Why isn’t anyone acknowledging my earnesity?
Why am I being toyed with?
I don’t ask for much,
I just want this one thing
But as more time passes all I want to do is sit in defeat
Why should i have to accept the responsibilities that this world has created me?
Why should I have to endure all this pain?
The world won’t leave me alone and that isn’t my fault
That’s what I’ve said but all I’ve done was hide and run
Because I’m at a loss
Lord above, I beg you, hear my plead
And I hate that this is the only thing I can do
The only thing I can do is tread on thorns with my bare feet
But I close my eyes and say, ” I pray for my dream,”
