Time to Change - E

When the things you feel 
aren't real 
and the colors that you've seen
are actually black and white

When your loved ones words never mean
a thing, and they were the ones who started up a fight
When everything is normal,
but its still not right

When your not sure what time of day it is
cause its always as dark as night
when you forget how to feel 
because all you feel is fright

Thats when you know your in a miserable place
thats when you know you should stop running the race
take deeper breaths and slow down your pace
because your life needs a new turn 
and it needs to be changed

So let them help you, if they offer there hand
you aren't living your life
if that life is planned
so many maps all around you
so many routes to go
but you cant choose your own

Thats when you know your in a miserable place
thats when you know you should stop running the race
take deeper breaths and slow down your pace
because your life needs a new turn 
and it needs to be changed

just one step at a time
and hope that you'll be fine
cause now you're living your life 
without a sign
that tells you were to go
and all you need to know
is that:

Now every color you see
is exactly the way you want it to be

Every person you know
doesn't want you to go

and when you look at the clock 
you dont feel so stuck

Thats when you know that now you're in the right place
you are winning this race
forget about pace
you've got so much to learn
and now your life is changed.

    sounds messed up, but nice poem. Poetry has such a healing effect for me to let my true feelings out. Keep sharing and writing.
