"Quiet   Desperation"


There is a saying
With deep frustration
Many of us live
In quiet desperation

We go through life
A day at a time
Wishing I had your life
While you wish for mine

Many wear a mask
Showing a smile
Yet dying inside
All the while

For each of us
Life is planned out
Never really knowing
What it's all about

We spend our life
Chasing a dream
Yet it's not as easy
As it would seem

A different life
Never will we find
For quiet desperation
Is buried in the mind.
