finally setting down all the drugs and alcohol. i wrote this a while ago right after i got sober. major turning point in my life. hope someone can get something form this.


i lost my way and i cant be found
im screaming but no one can hear a sound
it wont be long before i drown in my thoughts
before i let down someone just becuse i forgot
i feel so low and i know somethings wrong
these sleepless nights are way too long
i keep thinking i will be okay
but then all hope is blown away
i dont know who i am cause i lost myself
i pray no one feels what i have felt
all of my pain has turned into fear
i have pushed away everyone near
i have no more tears left to cry
i am freshly out of all the lies
and i done creating new alibies
slowly but surely i will find my way back
dealing with emotions i once thought i lacked
im trying to do what i know is right
i know i dont have it in me to lose this fight
my life just seems so hard to grasp
killing myslef for all i did in the past
if i go back i wont survive
i dont want that girl to be revived
i dont know who i am but willing to find out
if you dont believe you have every right to doubt
all the promises made and the words i spoke
all of it was just a big joke
i dont want to lie and hurt the ones i love
i just want to get over this and rise above
i chose a new road and theres no turning back
im headed home i just have to pack

  Wow...I can completely relate and understand. Each and every line speaks volumes! I left my certain someone (we were suppose to get married) to come back home to Ohio because I knew I needed to get away from the depression we feed off of one another as well as the drugs that help sooth the depression and loneliness. I know how it is to not know yourself, to feel you have lost yourself in your past actions. To be willing to do ANYTHING to give up ANYTHING to change our pasts to change the hurt we have caused... this my friends is one of the best write i've read in a long time
