L.. Pierson


There’s a void deep inside me
Life’s drifting away
The emptiness hurts more
With each passing day

It did not use to be like this
When did it change
Life’s not worth living
When your always in pain

How did this happen
Where did I go wrong
Deep Depression sets in
Just from hearing a song

Am I going crazy
Don’t know what to do
Only Feelings I have
Is this anger towards you

I’m not asking for much
Just some little sign
That things may be different
If given the time

I think my own weakness
Is sealing my doom
I have barely the strength
To leave my bedroom

What would my kids think
If I took my own life
Would it make me a terrible
Mother and wife

They don’t need me no more
I’ve done all I can do
They’ve got their own problems
They don’t need mine too

I’ll get up tomorrow
And go ‘bout my day
Wishing that things
Could be different some way

I know I must change things
Can’t go on much longer
Keep thinking that someday
I will feel stronger

Life is not worth living
If your living this way
Consumed by this emptiness
Day after day

    This is me in so many ways, except im not a parent, only a child.... but the feeling of them not needing me any more is just the same. They can live without me, and i would rather not live with the pain.
