the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 33
my story

my story


my soul was really weary

i'm not good enough

but then i see the people

their lives were really rough


i wanted to share my story

with those who would understand

the kind of life i lead

to those who would lend a hand


yet as i watched the streets

crowds that pass me by

i knew full well that many

had the same tears to cry


they all had troubles like mine

and they all had lives so rough

they all had failed and felt

they weren't good enough


and as i wished there were someone

to whom i could share my sorrow

i looked upon the people

to find a shoulder i could borrow


yet i knew that they knew my story

of the sadness i must suffer

and they have experienced all the pain

enduring the burning sulphur


of course it was so different

yet lives are all the same

but each a special meaning

each a different name


to hear my story again

i'm sure would be most boring

but as i find a face

with eyes just as imploring


a curiosity perhaps

that would love to hear me out

but deep inside everyone

is letting out a shout


an endless call for help

that they will never find

in people just like me

who always weep and whine


so i share that same old story

to those who would want to hear

but the story of my life

is the same as theirs i fear
