The life I see and know is gloomy

There is no hope for someone so hidden

Living in a fantasy world of slumber

Destructive to one’s self

Dismiss what you may think you know

I must remain unspoken

A secret I must keep from those who ask

Wanting nothing more then to say I’m alright

Cover their eyes so they remain blind

I’ll take it all, so you can be happy

Never letting you see the joyless world I live in

Tomorrow will be just as dim as the rest
