  There are moments when I feel like I am losing it;
My emotions are changing so fast I can’t even sit.

I’m laughing one minute, then tears in the blink of an eye;
I don’t understand what’s happening to me and I don’t know why.

I’m usually the strong one, the one who holds it together;
But not anymore, not right now, will this ever get any better?

Who’s gona hold me together, whose gona fix what’s wrong?
When I don’t even know myself, why I feel like I just don’t belong.

Nothing feels right anymore, have I finally lost my mind?
Why is this happening to me, I don’t have the strength to bind.

These emotions that are running wild and free;
There’s no where I can go, no on I can turn to, no one who can see.

What I’m going through, my mind is running wild and I can’t slow it down;
The emotions are driving me crazy and I don’t know where I’m bound.

I wanna laugh, I wanna cry, I wanna scream, I wanna fly:
All there raw emotions jumping back and fourth and no matter how I try.

I can’t get a hold on my emotions, I feel so out of place;
Have I really lost my mind, is it finally time to face?

That I’m not the strong one and I can’t always make it right;
Is it time to let someone else take over the fight?

To make everything all right, to make everyone happy, to keep it all together?
I can’t do this anymore, I can’t be the one to make everything better.

I don’t have anything left to give, I don’t have anything left at all;
I can’t even figure out how I feel, I can’t even build a wall.

I can’t even find peace, there’s just too much pain;
To block out all these feelings that are driving me insane.

Please let me know what you think of my writings. I am looking for honest feedback.
Thank You
