Let It Out

It’s a feeling
no it’s a burden

seeing what you want
feeling what you wish
your heart wants it so bad
but your mind knows you can’t have

you have to learn early
what you dream and what you wish
never are realities

the feeling that you have when you’re alone
is like marching with your own symphony hall
playing its saddest song for only you to hear
loneliness creeps in
depression takes over
mind is all blurry
emotions want out
what to do, what to do
let it out young man
let it out
