Hanging On - Poem by Sneha Murali

This wasn't the life i longed for,
This wan't the right choice to make.
I feel like the world's against me,
I feel like my heart's gonna break.

The pain i feel is just soo real,
It pulls me back into the dark.
There are some things that time doesn't heal,
The arrow of problems always hits its mark.

I've choked on my words, i've drowned in my tears,
I've read all the rules in the book.
But nothing gets me ready for wat i will hear,
I'm just waiting there, dangling on a hook.

I want my life back, and i want it now,
I'm sick and tired of being wrong.
I want to laugh and smile again, but don't know how,
Life's short, hell no, it's much too long.

I wanna live a normal life,
Is that too much to ask.
Well, as everybody says,
When one door closes, god opens the other.
