A Losing Battle

As i walk through the valley of the shadow of death i feel alone I live in a place that is supposed to feel like home The emotional disconnect captives my family So many things to say and no time to say it We’re losing our minds trying to keep it So often we just barely keep our heads above water Its hard to keep afloat with broken feelings dragging us down The need to be understood causes us to drown The ability to watch your spiritual death is a curse To see everything you could do to make things better but only make it worst I am buried in disgrace I am entombed in depression I smile with beautiful lies The happy people are the ones that cry The ones that have to turn the other cheek The ones that could steal everyones attention but choose to be meek Their smile belongs to every tear that disappears under their chin Their smile is the price of love I wonder why happy people don’t give up
