Doubt and Hope

I thought I had things figured out
I thought I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt

But then it all comes crashing down
I’m alone again, trapped in my head, no one around

I know I shouldn’t be influenced by others
But my worries and doubts, they overwhelm and smother

I have this terrible tightness in my chest
It chokes and squeezes and I’m all out of breath

I beat myself up and tear my mind apart
I feel like a child, wandering, lost in the dark

Perception is a funny thing

It can open your eyes or blind you to everything

It can make you cry or make you sing

It can heal your wounds or it can sting

I keep recycling my pain, hoping not all is in vain
Hope is the only thing I have to keep me sane
