Weigh Down


You're always there are slowly killing me

I try to hide from you so no one can see

I wish that you could just leave

You're making it harder for me to breathe

I can't think straight when you're over me hovering

These clothes aren't big enough for a covering

You make me neglect my family, hate my friends

You make me never want to be seen again

I hate myself when you're here

You just make me want to disappear

My eyes don't light up. My smile's not intact

I'm not really sure if I'll ever go back

Now it's time for me to live for myself, not you

So I'm finally ready for a change, I'm through

I will succeed and I will pass

I will achieve this important task

I'll live up to what I say

And I'll try to change today
