Too Old To Dream
Author: Tarna


Maybe I don't need anything at all
A reality check that I am no one
Easily replaced by a society
That cares only for itself

Maybe I am too old to dream
What the future holds is for the young
Maybe my time on earth is near done
And I am left cynical and soured

Maybe life has been too hard
My heart broken once to often
My dreams left slashed into oblivion
Maybe I have reached my final straw

Maybe I am just tired of trying to no avail
Tired of the pains no one else sees
Tired of carrying others that won't carry me
Tired of the silence that overwhelms

Maybe its being taken for granted
Maybe its being left feeling used
Maybe I am left too scared to dream
Or maybe it's just my darkness that screams
