Have you ever woken up, and realized your like in nothing like you thought it would be?
Well, today was one of those days...
(Warning. Venting on coming.)
How can a dream turn into a nightmare? How can hope just die?
What am I talking about?
I put all my hopes and dreams into a certain outcome. 100% believing it was what I wanted.
Everyday that I got closer to my goal. Everyday also making a new compromise.
By the time my day came my dream could not be recongnized.
How can something that looked so good, so perfect... turn into such a nightmare.
I just want to run away from it all!
But what about those I would be leaving behind?
My family needs me, they need out of this toxic situation, and it kills me that I can't get them out.
I search my mind for an answer... nothing comes.
Just ear shattering silence.
This is suffocating me like a wet blanket.
My soul is sick, slipping into comatose, to weak to cry, but it can't end like this!
I'm a fighter, they can't keep me down forever!
Still, that is easier said then done.
Someday soon the sun will rise, I will lift my head to the breeze, and the pain will be gone.
I'll shed my past for a brillant future.
