I'Ve Been - Poem by Laura Dunne

i've been quitting
the charade of my life
i've been forgetting
the point of living
i've been thinking
of ending it all today
i can't do it no matter how i feel
you won't let me do it to myself

you try so hard
to keep me safe
you try so hard
to teach of life
and your faith in me
is worth more than you'll ever know

i've been stopping
and taking a breath
i've been hearing
your words over in my head
i've been trying
to get them out all day
i can't stop them no matter how i feel
you won't let me hear myself

you try so hard
to keep me safe
you try so hard
to teach of life
and your faith in me
is worth more than you'll ever know

can't stop, won't ever stop now
you're pushing, unable to pause now
living for me, not anyone else
help me, where's my life now?

you try so hard
to keep me safe
you try so hard
to teach of life
and your faith in me
is worth more...

you try so hard
to keep me safe
you try so hard
to teach of life
and your faith in me
is worth more than...
more than you'll ever know
