TITLE: Wouldn't Have Made It

Thought it would make me happy
To be standing in the center
But I feel your eyes upon me
And it's slowly getting harder

Thought if everybody loved me
I could learn how to love myself
But opinions change so swiftly
That my tears don't need the help

Chorus:
I can't say that I didn't ask for this
Except maybe, in not so many words
And sometimes I, just want to take back my wish
Because if I had known how much it'd hurt
I wouldn't have made it

Thought I could make decisions
And live the way I wanted to
With all these expectations
My heart sinks like a lead balloon

Chorus

This is my life, love it or hate it
I can never change what's done
God help me navigate this winding road
Save me from all I could
And all I have become

Chorus x 2

Jesus, without You, I'd be lost
I wouldn't have made it

This is such a thought-provoking little piece. How often do we think just a little recognition will make all the difference. But the truth is Jesus recognizes us every second.

This was beautiful. Loved the meaning, loved the words, and loved how you used this moving entry for the topic at hand.

Good job.

God Bless~

How true this is. As a child I wanted to be known, as an adult I wanted to fade into the wallpaper. I love this. good job

'Save me from all I could
And all I have become'

Powerful words that sum up a powerful message.

Thank you.
