No one really knows how I feel inside.
And yet day-to-day I stay alive.

It's but a few people that keep me going and going.
But the cancer of my soul keeps growing and growing.

I've come to a point to know
that no one really cares if I come or go.

My hands aren't tied but my hearts not free.
For my mind has it locked up so it can't clearly see
all of my soul's greatest fears.
That when I cry, no one will help to dry my tears.

If I only had three wishes,
I'd only need but one.

For up till now, my life has been a lie.
If I only had my wish, I wish I would...

Hi marty11,

Yes life can feel this way but I have found that something is always right around the corner. I think you are going to find that this place of passions is full of people that are over flowing with love and very caring.

Welcome to passions,

***marty11,
  "sick of being sick
   tired of being tired
   bored of being bored."

Marty11,

Welcome to Passions.  Indeed, this is the place to share those feelings.  Most here have expressed similar sadness at some point. Great first post.
