Feel As Though You Could
Ever look into the mirror
And stare in disgust with who you see?
It’s not so much what you look like
It’s who you've come to be.
An almost visible burden
Weighs heavily upon your back.
This gravity is slowly growing
Causing your features to go slack.
You wonder how long you can stand it
Before your sanity leaves for good.
Do not dare lie to yourself!
You feel as though it could!
Turn away from the mirror once again
And return to the life you've been living in.
“Step back from change”, you hear doubt say
“You’re comfortable in these wounds, my friend”
You know the reason your life is pain
Despite the will to change
It’s all self-inflicted,
It’s as if you’re pain addicted.
Some sick side of you feels
A sort of enjoyment when you fall
You wish you could mute its voice
To be gone with its beck and call
But your will- power to act
Is not so strong
Despite the choice you know is right
And the choice you know is wrong
Won’t you find the strength
To break away from these bonds?
And cut ties with all the lies
That you've been drowning in for so long?
This evil will one day engulf you
And you know you cannot break away as you should
But a strong resolve ignites inside you
And you feel as though you could.
