    I Am Choosing Me

    I do not want to be here I am tired of the pain
    Your indifference and the solitude is making me insane
    I feel trapped in this abyss that has become my heart
    Your words have me drowning, they are tearing me apart
    I cry for the future and cry for the past
    I wonder how long I can truly last
    I am slowly dying from the pain that is destroying my mind
    You never seem to notice are you really, truly blind
    Your words are like daggers they cut me to the bone
    The tears that I cry, are ones you have never known
    Not because you do not see them but because you do not care
    Though you are with me it is though you are not even there
    I am tired of crying, my tears I will wipe clean
    My spirit is waking, longing to be seen
    If you will not reach me I will have to let you go
    I am choosing to live, I just thought you should know
    I have waited for something that I hoped would come to be
    I waited too long hoping you would finally see
    Your eyes have not opened and my mind has paid the price
    Well I am done paying, I am done playing nice
    If you will not see me and show me the way
    Then my time I am taking and goodbye I will say
    I hoped for a future that is clearly impossible to reach
    Now I am reaching for a solution that a lesson could not to teach
    My time was not wasted nor will I regret
    I have treasured many moments I will not soon forget
    But I move on to a horizon that for me has time to spare
    To find a path with room enough for me to share
    Not to walk alone without love by my side
    I have decided I no longer want to run and hide
    I will face this truth strongly and use its power to grow
    I am choosing myself and I just thought you should know

    Share You With Me

    Tell me your story, I want to hear your name,

    Whisper to me your secrets, and let me do the same,

    Let me be your shoulder, your pillar in the night,

    Give me reign to support you, to help you through your fight,

    I do not want to keep you, I only wish to see,

    What the future will hold if you simply let it be,

    Will you share yourself with me, do you want to let me in?

    Is it safe for me to share too, are you ready to begin?

    Friendship is all I am seeking, no need to run away,

    Who knows what you could find if you took the time to stay,

    It must be lonely always on your own,

    Let me change that for you, compassion can replace the fear you have known,

    Just one word is all it will take to show you how it could be,

    Will you take the chance today, will you share you with me?

    I Am Somebody

    Nobody sees me, cry as I may

    Nobody sees me, as I simply fade away,

    Nobody hears me, or my pleas in the night

    Nobody hears me, as I struggle through this fight

    Nobody needs me, until their plate is bare

    Nobody needs me, they don’t even realize that I am not there

    Nobody knows me, or the path that I tread

    Nobody knows me, or the pain inside my head

    Though nobody sees me, my heart breaks in two

    Though nobody sees me, my tears cry out for you

    Though nobody hears me, my song I will sing

    Though nobody hears me, my voice I will give wing

    Though nobody needs me, my gifts I freely give

    Though nobody needs me, happiness I continue to live

    Though nobody knows me, one day they will

    Though nobody knows me, I share myself still.
