The time goes by so slowly,
The ticking clock screams on.
My life gone by; one raised hand,
Each touch, each sound, so wrong.

Never one to think 'I'm wrong,'
never been so sure.
Every moment soon gone by
I've finally found my cure.

I wrote it down on paper,
I screamed it all out loud.
It helps so much to get it out,
I've never been so proud.

A shadow in the sunlight,
A wilted flower; dead.
I wonder why I never knew,
'It's dangerous,' they said.

A smile again replenished,
A mind so void of fear
I sought the help I needed
The life I missed, so near.

To the people I once hated;
The ones I pushed away
I hope you will forgive me,
and love me again someday.
