Welcome To My World

Welcome To My World Have you ever tried to cry But there's no tears left to shed Have you ever seen the face of misery Or looked into the eyes of dread Have you ever gripped the pain Cause it's all that's left to hold Have you ever tried so hard to love But found, your heart was just too cold Have you ever just had to accept, Your agony has no end Have you ever been so desperate, You've claimed the sorrow your best friend Have you ever held hands with depression Wept on the shoulder of fear Have you ever reached out to emptiness But there's nothing to pull near. Have you sobbed yourself to sleep Anguish at the foot of your bed Have you ever been shaken from your dream To be thrown in a nightmare instead Have you felt the cringe inside Embraced by betrayal and hate Have you ever then just had to dwell In a world that terror creates Have you ever been left empty No Courage to unfold If you've ever known the hurt Then welcome to my world Written by Shannen Wrass Copyright © 1995 Shannen Wrass.
