Inspiration doesn’t come easy
It takes time, energy, feelings and reasoning
It takes you on journeys of your own,
But spelled by others, on a different tone.
Destination is nothing like you were ever told.
Monsters are awake, dreams turn to reality,
You instantly become aware of your fragility.
It’s painful, it’s tearing you up
But there’s nothing to do, no strength to stop.
And all of a sudden you are drained…
Of life and hope, of things to blame,
So you turn to yourself and stare
In the broken mirror, smiling to your own glare.
But it’s not you who’s starring back
It’s the stories you’ve been told,
Dreams you’ve never had…
An image that doesn’t belong
To you or the others;
It’s just a perception of a heartbreaking song.
