Many times we hit a block when it comes to expressing ourselves to others and to us. This is one such time where I wanted to but I could not.
sitting here, my mind wanders far away
from the memories, that once haunted me!
sitting here, i wish i could be far away
holding your hand and walking in the beach!
sitting here, i dream of the future
when darkness and light would co-exist!
sitting here, my eyes look very tired
but across the table, i hope you can see the fire inside!
sitting here, clasped in chains of emotions
i long to break free and say what i want to!
sitting here, watching this methodical world
i fight against the odds to keep me alive
sitting here, while everyone is chasing wealth
i wonder if it’s worth the pain and struggle
sitting here, wanting to live life
i struggle to express myself to you!
