A Reason

Stuck inside a head with too much space

blankly stare because I feel out of place.

What am I even doing here?

Lack of purpose is my biggest fear.

Will I ever feel alright?

Will I ever feel alive?

Give me a reason to live.

Give me a reason to breathe.

Give me anything at all.

I wake up to just sit quietly,

try to move but I’m too heavy,

remind myself to just breathe.

Dark thoughts invade my peace

is this really all that’s left of me,

a broken heart that still beats?

Give me a reason to live.

Give me a reason to breathe.

Give me anything, anything at all.

It’s gotten the very best of me

this depression is crippling,

but I know I’ll make it out alive.

I’ve got a purpose in this life

Yeah, I’ve got a purpose in this life.

I will find a reason to live.

I’ll find a reason to breathe.

I’ll find a way to conquer

what’s getting the best of me.
