The point of this escapes me.
I'm searching for something better,
A more impressive likeness.
A few emotions changing,
I turn into something better,
But the affected glow is finite,
And still, my heart keeps changing.
The burden of self doubt
Is bringing my whole world down.
So why should I survive?
The future is dire, and I can't find a purpose.
I hold a billion pounds of nothing,
And the weight of my burden
Threatens to collapse me.
You could say that I'm failing in all the right ways.
I'm enduring a life of uncontrolled anxiety.
I reject this life, so I'm setting out for another way.
The feeling is lost, so I escape the heartache.
If the feeling is gone, then I escape unharmed.
