a mirage of my own making

March 23, 2021


I feel like I'm running towards something that's not there
It's so far away
My dream is just a dream
Everyone else is already there
Why am I the only one still running?
Nothing is more miserable than running and never reaching
I'm scared to open my eyes in the morning
I won't reach the finish line today
I'm becoming more impatient every day
They throw me away
Could they be right?
I've just been running towards something that's not there
A mirage of my own making
Am I on my own?
I've fought so hard to be here
My struggles, my scars
They're proof of my existence
My friends, my family, they move away from me
Can I keep running towards something that's not there?
I've been told I can win if I try
I've been trying my whole life
I haven't won yet
How do I have the strength
to find something that's not there?

    OMG, I LOVE THIS PIECE: "A mirage of my own making, am I on my own?" - That line made me stop and think for like ten minutes to fully comprehend the meaning of this song. The metaphors in this piece are so magical and elaborate and I cannot believe how incredibly talented you are; I love this piece. Also, I am a songwriter too and this piece is so inspiring for me! I cannot wait to see what else you come up with, this was such a pleasure to read!
