Eyes Wide Shut


Eyes Wide Shut

you look around with your eyes wide shut,
and listen with your hands on your ears.
The world is revolving around you, but
you can focus on nothing but the pain and tears.
You wish all your worries would just float away,
you wish things were simpler, more honest and real.
You keep your thoughts in, let nothing betray,
what's on the inside, the storm that you feel.
A mixture of feelings, from anger to sorrow,
a monsoon of emotions, pounding the dam.
You think you can't last to another tomorrow,
but you trudge through heartache to find that you can.
Why you keep doing it, day after day
is the only reason you stay alive
something compels you to stay
to work toward happiness, to try and survive.
so you trudge forward, one foot at a time
and keep on keeping on, don't stop
you get up the mountain at a steady climb
then you succeed, make it to the top.
