Darkness

confused
insane
in pain

the cycle never stops

the highs are followed by lows
sunrises followed by sunsets

i think this joy will never leave me
it’s gone before i finish thinking that

i think this time i’ve beaten life for sure
i’ve figured out how it all works

i’ll be in charge of all my feelings
i’ll only feel peace love and joy

i can control what happens now
the captain’s wheel is in my hands

it’s when i’m sobbing on the ground
i realize there’s no end

to all the cycles on this planet
to pain that always follows joy
to tears after smiles and laughter
to darkness after every day…
