Microscope

Have you ever felt backed up as if you can’t reach out
All of your thoughts are filled with doubt
Looking everywhere for answers and no friends that care
At least it seems that way because of how you’re drowning in despair

Shut off to the world not letting it be known
That the real you is suffering with no hope shown
The façade is doing its job hiding the pain
But how long can you last as it piles up each day

Each second the clock ticks you wonder the next step
Which way is it that you can feel an ounce of progress
Success seems to be what defines us, but the definition isn’t just
You and I both know there is more to this life, but we can’t shake the rust

Time is a constant, no alterations necessary
But it seems to be differing as it is no longer plenty
We can’t explain the transition that happens as we age
Especially when we can’t figure out how to dissolve our rage

As each one of us tries to turn the page, we pause on ourselves
In the world of today that seems to be the key to wealth
After all how can we make an impact if we aren’t right
The answer is easy because nobody is perfect in His sight

Tonight as we lay our heads to sleep
There is still a world surrounding us full of broken dreams
To focus on our problems isn’t what makes us unique
The ability to encourage one another is one of many keys

Unlock yourself from the chains of today
I guarantee you can identify with someone else’s pain
There is something to the saying, “there’s strength in numbers”
We’re all inhabiting this planet for a reason, so why not truly help each other
