The days are long and endless
Nights bring no calm
Chaotic and rambling thoughts
Abound within my mind
Agitated and restless
Heart beating at a quickened pace
I move as if in a fog
My voice is lost
As if gone mute
I cannot find the words
To express a need for help
So many needing a piece of me
Pulled in too many directions
Not enough hours in the day
Is anybody listening?
Does anybody care?
How I long for
How badly I need
To find some solace
And peace of mind
A place to lay my weary head
Somewhere I can leave the world behind
