He plans to travel outside,
but never winds up leaving his room.
He wants to socialize,
but anxiety tells him what to do.
He dons optimistic vibes,
untrue to how he feel inside.
He flirts with suicide,
and repeatedly asks himself.

There has to be more to this life
than staring at my alarm In the morning.
There has to be more to this life
than waiting around for someone to save me.
There has to be more to this life
than merely what the naked eye can see.
There has to be more to this life,
but I think I’ll just end it now.

His life was a climb up a rickety ladder.
He was twenty years up, and was scared of heights.
He didn’t pretend to have the answers.
He knew up from down, not wrong from right.
As he dangled at deaths doorstep
He regretted so many things.
He cuts his noose in a last ditch effort.
He chose life, he chose to climb.
