Lost in the fire, I run through the trees, but you don't see me. I have scars that run deep, I haunt my own dreams in my sleep. I have fallen from the clouds and floated back up. I haven't forgotten the wounds that I have picked up. Often more than I remember BUT the scars still show. I may be brave. I will always try to save! I may smile, often faked but the negatives, off I try to shake. It is always take, the friendships I make. Often disappear, which bring back another tear. I write my words like my heart on the page, I only get wiser with age. The mic is on but blink and the moment has gone. I speak only of the truth and how I see, what fate has given me. Strengths to cherish, the goal to leave footprints before we perish. To live as we want, not as we are told. A life that is ours isn't the one in the shop we were sold. We pick up the broken pieces and wonder why? Why you cry? You can't deny, you try but often the pain comes in waves and pulls you under. The storms roll in and bring the thunder. For the weakness you see in me, if the weakness in you, you see. Pushing the blame around like lonely peas on your plate. I will never be late, I can't be with fate I always have a date. The twists and the turns, the endless amount of burns. Never one to learn, always pushing myself into the ground to feel the burn. Looking for love or a sign from above. That a purpose is here for me, there is a point to being me. The light is often dim, we are only human, of course we sin. In the end, the battle we must win. Come and dine with me, be who YOU want to be. Without ropes tying you down or worrying what others say around town. The here and now, you are on stage - take a bow. I have learnt that pain is inevitable and we can never be immune, from often feeling the gloom. The rainbows and the sun we must chase and run for, from the world we want so much more. Often in a daze, I spend my life in a haze. Looking for the codes to unlock the doors only to be led into a maze, it is one endless craze. I roll the dice, I often overthink and spend too long thinking twice. My loved ones cheer from the side, always there for the rollercoaster ride. The days that are dark, the days we need to reignite the spark. I am here, for when you feel like they all disappear. I see the pain, I see the strain. Life is tough and the challenges are rough. We run through the woods and face many tears that lead to floods. Our hearts are stolen, broken and are on the mend, in signs of trouble search from a friend. To you my hand I will always lend. Take the time, to hear the clocks chime. The time is now, you know how. How to pick up the pieces and face the world, as the girl you have fought hard to be.
The real Sophie, that is me.
