Misery comes in different ways,
It can last for weeks, or just for days,
My misery started long ago,
Silent so no one would know.
When I was only just a child
When the misery would run wild,
Some causes came in dark of night,
Other causes during daylight.
But as I aged, learned how to shout,
I became able to let some out,
But there’s some that stays within,
It seems this war, I’ll never win.
At night he haunts me in my dreams,
During the light she always wins,
Now I’m trapped within these walls,
They know I’m here, but no one calls.
A test, they say, will let us see,
What is happening inside of me,
This misery I have had for days,
Bothers my life, in many ways.
But when all is said and done,
I pray I’ll once more see the sun,
That will be my very own way,
I’m going to live another day.
