Who Says

Who says that dreams are worth pursuing
Maybe they’re best left in our heads
Maybe that’s why they come to us
While we’re tucked away in our beds.

Who says we have to keep fighting
Maybe we just can’t admit that we’ve lost
Maybe this war we keep waging
Is no longer worth the cost

Who says that time heals all wounds
Maybe they’re not meant to heal
Maybe the scars left behind
Are reminders that we can still feel

Who says that blood is thicker than water
Maybe they both drip through a sieve
Maybe it takes more than a blood line
To know who or what to believe

Who says that life is meant to be happy
Maybe this is all just for show
Maybe these things and these people
Are all that we’ll ever know


As I stare into the black hole, I fall deeper
Farther into the abyss
Into the nether, the nothingness

I crawl aimlessly inside the darkness

While I struggle with my own sins
Fearful of a messy battle, a losing fight
But still I’m hopeful, that I’ll find a hidden light
