That’s Life

I have this urge to run and hide

So far away, so far inside

That no one can ever, ever try

To penetrate this simple mind of mine

I wish I could curl up and fall asleep

Into a peaceful slumber that is deep

Deeper than anyone has been before

Longer than anyone who wants it more

But I cannot hide and I cannot sleep

For this life’s been given for me to live

So I’m living it in the way best I can

I hope it’s enough for my lifespan
