About the Author
WHAT LIES AHEAD
As the rain falls down my window frame
The tears fall down my face the same.
As the black clouds cover above my head.
I just struggle on through another bad day instead
Not knowing what lies ahead.
Iím feeling useless, Iím feeling bad.
Canít help thinking about the hard times Iíve had.
Canít stop taking it out on people that care.
I feel like I have nothing to give, nothing is there.
Apart from inside, that has been stripped bare.
As the busy world passes by.
I canít carry on I just want to be free and fly.
I sadly close my eyes and go to bed.
Not knowing what tomorrow will bring or what will lie ahead!!
When my body has had enough it will tell me.
When my mindís had enough it will show me.
You get what youíre given for a body and itís all free
It does not matter if thatís not how you want it to be.
Because there is no such thing as normal you see!!
Well, I donít know whatís harder - the mental or the physical health.
Or just feeling like youíre on the Ďno-goodí shelf.
I keep saying I wish I could just have a normal life.
But all I mean is a life without strife.
I do keep trying struggling on the best I can.
But I feel like I need the strength of a 30 stone man.
So donít let anyone tell you life is normal cause there is no such word.
If there was, I am sure by now I would have heard.
So everyone has their ways with life or getting through!
But never forget youíre not alone, there are others just like me and you too!!!
