I have lost sight of the important things.
Blinded to everything in my path,
Overlooking those that stand next to me.
More times than not I am harsh,
The words I speak are cruel.
I close myself off from everyone,
Wrapped in my own blanket of self-defense.
How do you drop your guard,
When it is so deeply ingrained inside?
How do you move on from the demons that haunt you,
And keep you awake at night?
How do you just let go?
How do you just know that everything will be all right?
I have seen the problems,
Thought long and hard,
Recognized them for what they are.
But can I overcome them without help?
I do not think so.
I do not think this is something I can do on my own.
I have lost sight of my dreams.
Lost sight of everything I always said I wanted to do.
Will I ever get there?
I do not know.
Will I ever be where I truly want to be?
Who can tell?
I lost sight of everything that was important to me.
I can reclaim those lost dreams.
I can bring those things back.
Even if I have to find a way to do it alone.
