Take a Dive

I’m bearing down beside me, straight threw and into my life. I’ve lost my sight, but its still fading. I’m tearing right into another life. And here I have been, and I’m still waiting. I’m tearing down the walls, they were closed in too tight. I don’t even know if I’m worth saving. I’m living for a chance at another’s eyes. A chance to call them my own, because mine were taken. I’m dying on the ground, starring towards the sky. This is where I have lain, and I can’t stop the bleeding. So here I lay, about to die, it almost feels like flying. I’m starring down beside me, crieng, barely even alive. I wish for death but I can’t stop fighting. So I jump, take a dive. As I fall I’ve been asking myself why. But when I finally hit bottom, I find…. I’m still alive.
