I wish I could unload the pain,

Unload then go completely insane.

Walk under the sunlight with a smile,

Not walking in the dark with every mile.

I wish the tears would stop rolling,

But it's like telling a cloud to stop raining.

One day get up and look upon a bright day,

Glance up at the sky and it be blue and not gray.

I wish the sadness would turn to glee,

But it's like asking vinegar honey to be.

Maybe that day will come without announcing itself,

Saving me from this life, Saving me from myself.
