hurts so much

it all hurts so much
I can't describe

how my heart is torn
and things don't jibe

too much pain
I can't go on

although I know I must
no matter where the feeling's gone

I want to stay numb
that seems the only way

to take a step, to stay afloat
and I'll try to pray

feeling caught

feeling caught
between a rock
and a hard place

feeling distraught
over you being
within that space

knowing what's wrought
there and what
you'll have to face

I have never bought
into the rhetoric
on which they base

all their teaching is fraught
with; while I've tried
to make my case

it's you who sought
to enter into this
daily race

and while I've fought
to keep you here,
I hope there is a trace

of what you ought
to know, allowing them
nothing to erase

learn from the movies

went for a movie to see
guess what-Toy Story 3
had a message for me
guess what that would be
kids are growing up finely
and though my eyes get blurry
it should make me happy
