The Lyrics Of My Life - Poem by Cooper Gilliland

This is a strength born of misery
A focused cut of my insanity
And I scream as the darkness
Surrounds me!

I'm drowning in a sea of blue
And I know that there's no one to save me
Locked in the gaze of disappointment as
I... Hold... On!

Fighting to stay above the surface
As I suffocate under words of sorrow
And my apathy, pulling me down, whispers
Just... Let... Go!

Perfect chaos, gripping me tighter
gives me peace in the eye of the storm
Laughter spills from twisted emotions as
I... Let... GO!
