Sentenced to life

Sometimes I want to die

I’m too weak I cannot try

Its Gods to give not mine to take

I feel this life is so fake

I try inside to happy be

But the sadness grows exponentially

I laugh and smile for all to see

Sentence of life it is for me

Sometimes I want to scream and shout

Will someone please just let me out?

I go through life day by day

Living life the same old way

I paste a grin on my face

Even though it’s an awkward place

I look at people through my eyes

I try to wear the right disguise

Sentence of life it is for me

It is all so painful for me to see

I am always filled with so much doubt

There has to be some way out

Will someone show me the way?

Is there a way to change my stay?

Sentenced to life it is for me

I guess that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
