I let a single tear slip from my eye,
I know I promised you I would not cry.
I held my head up high for far too long.
Now it starts to show that I am not that strong.

You thought I could maybe make it to the end,
Or at least half way around the forsaken bend.
But it just turns out that you weren’t right,
And it seems my goal is too far out of sight.

I pray to God that you would understand,
It’s like we jump too far and expect to land.
You think I’m so much more than I could ever be.
This whole time I’m just trying to be me.
