Wasn’t A Dream

I’ve been through a lot
I’ve been hurt, I’ve been ripped
I’ve been broken from the start
All this pain and tears will never stop.
I’ve tried to hear the sound of silence
calling from the dark but the sound of
light triumphs from the very start.
I can hear the sound of sadness calling my name
I want to respond to it but I know I will just get more pain
I was happy once but that was all a dream
that one day will be renamed and turned into reality
that will once again just fade away
Because all of this was never just a dream.
