I Will Be Just Fine

by, Cassandra

I want to know what it's like to feel alive;
for once in my life I want to know what it's like to fly,
to spread my wings and take this flight,
and make a wish and close my eyes.
Dreaming dreams of what it's like on the other side.
So I paint another picture with translucent colors
and try to pretend that my life is so much better.
"Be thankful for what you've got." or so they say,
but there is only so much a girl can take.
And I know that they wouldn't last one day
if they had to feel everything that I feel.
How can they say they understand when they've never asked?
All I can do is laugh and say "Its okay, I'll survive."
As long as I'm inside my head, I will be just fine.
