living or just breathing

it's times like these when you are at your lowest point

when you are on your knees with your head held down

oh , how vulnerable you must be

Get up

and get that dirt off of your jeans

Don't let them see you like this 

Oh, please just rise up and realize that your life has meaning

You're so much stronger than you look

I swear, just don't turn your back on the ones that you love

the ones who never gave up on you

you push, you pull, you thrive to survive

but how can you succeed when you haven't even opened your eyes

it appears that you have hit rock bottom but you just need to stop following the trends and 
beliefs of this dying generation

oh yes, stand up, rise above, with both of your eyes wide open

Live your life and know what it means to succeed

Be yourself and live to live

Not just to breathe

    your soul brings tears to my eyes how could you see from so far away how i ach to die and tell me to rise up from the ground to change my face from this sickening frown this tragedy that lies within my heart that i am just another part and no one sees the true me no one sees inside of me who am i? a creature like the rest with problems that seem to hold me back and i seem to stand alone hurting to my core broken to the bone where is my life the things i see i need to believe and not just breath
