Dream I used to be.

Dream I used to be.

A Poem by Chrissy McManis

The meaningless fighting of the mind

I've made my entrance to the world,
I've made it in the the world with a frown,
I've made it the world with sin,

Into the world of hate and sin,
Into the world of lust and sex,
Into this world with killing and blood...

The end of the world and blood will never come,
I've felt lately that i've been done,
The tears of my life that have come..
I've felt the end for so long...

Sometimes I've wanted it all to end...
Sometimes i wanted time to bend..
Let this blood spill from my veins..

Let these tears fall from my eyes.
Let me show these painful cries.

Can't you understand all my pain...
Can't you understand why i'm not sane..

F**k the pain, f**k the tears, understand me!
Let me be me and show how i really feel.

I've explained so many times...
I've made it all into rhymes..
I've played it on the chimes.

But you never understood the pain i'm going through.
You don't know the pain i'm going through.

You'll Never understand.

I've hidden the pain... 
To pretend that i'm sane.

I've hidden the tears.
I've hidden my fears.

To show you that i'm okay..
When sometimes I'm not okay.
But tomorrow is another a day.

Only in my dreams..
I was okay.
But in reality it was all different..

But this will never be a dream. 
So let's stop pretending.
It's who I am.
