Grieving of the Nether

Pretty little soul
Scared of the world
Afraid of the nothingness
Tightly wrapping the boundaries
Around you

Pretty little soul
Deprived of love
Longing for what you lack most
Searching for what you can’t find
Nowhere to

Pretty little soul
Wishing for one truthful heart
Who can see the grief!
But oh what skillful smile you have
People have no clue

Pretty little soul
Piercing holes into the future
Waiting for the right path to appear
But all the while the ground beneath you
Vanishes too

Pretty little soul
What a complicated symphony
Is the flow of your thoughts!
Failed understandings
Derails their mind from what is true

Oh pretty little soul
The world doesn’t give up
On shaping your self 
In a mold to their liking
Really, nothing knew
Oh, oh pretty little soul
All you want is time to blossom
If only the world would stop
Watering you whenever they please
And do it only when the need is due

Pretty little soul
Your grieving is as visual
As a photograph
But still their eyes refuse to see
And their feet reject your shoes

Oh pretty little soul
Oh pretty little soul
Promises made to satisfy the world
But what about your own desires?
Who will compromise to them, just who?

Pretty soul, pretty little soul
If only one could runaway
Running away, running away from expectations
Suffocating is the weight of it
Oh pretty little soul

They, oh pretty little soul
They’re stares pushing the sky on top of your shoulders
Holding, holding on
Surviving, surviving
Is the only thing they let you do

Pretty little soul
Life, living, life and living
What is the link between them?
The search for that is as broad
As the sky that is blue

Pretty, petty little soul, Oh pretty little soul
The lost, the unsolved souls
Who hasn’t found their way
Life is a grief for the nether
Don’t leave your hope
You need it to go through
