Sunshine and Sorrow 

My body is a cage…

I’m stuck here trapped inside

Looking through these eyeholes

No sanity I find.

Desperate, please someone help me

Don’t want to be this way

Feel like a stiff scarecrow

A smile painted on my face

Where’s my heart I feel inside

It’s hiding from your eyes

That passion I know is there

I know that I am kind

But here I sit, my mind pacing

No rest, no solid ground

Looking everywhere for comfort

But none is to be found

My fists are balled up tight

My eyes show deep distrust

Break me out of here

I’m trapped inside with lust

Lust to be finally seen

To be deemed acceptable

Like Pinocchio, am I real yet?

Does anybody know?

Can you see something that I can’t?

One small thing to give me hope?

Sunshine and Sorrow - continued

I’m cracking under pressure

From inside to my out

Been fighting hard to be strong

Been fighting hard to swim

There’s a current pulling me

Like a whirlpool in my head

Voices scream “It’s useless!”

Let it be what it will be

Stop your arms, stop your heart

You’ll never fly free

But I will

But I will!

And I won’t be killed!

I’ll never stop my fight!

My mind might take me down

Into its own dark night

But my heart is like a warrior

It’s been through worse than this

I’ll find myself…somewhere in here

And I’ll be more than this

I’ll never stop advancing!

I’ll never stop reaching high!

I’ll never stop singing loud

That I’m worth a million fights!

You’re worth a million wars!

All you who read my song

You’re worth a million mornings

When your heart has lost its song

You’re worth a million tries

You’re worth a million falls

You’re worth a million hugs

You’re worth a billion calls

You’re worthy to be loved

We’re worthy to be loved

We are worth our fights…always.

SWIM
