There was a time when I loved swimming
I loved the way it made me feel
I was a good swimmer
In fact I was certain that I would or could never drown
Look at me now
I’m drowning
I’m struggling
I’m lost in every direction of life

What have I come to?
There was a time when I used to be so much fun
I used to love going out and now?
I just want to spend my time locked in my room
Listen to music so loud that I can’t feel a thing
I want to be numb

I want to run away
I dont ever want to come back to this place again
I want a fresh start
I want to forget every bad thing that has  happened to me

I am locked in a haze
I need something
I need someone to tell me its all worth it
That life is a struggle and youll make it big
I want someone to ignite a fire that will never get extinguished

And I needed this someone so bad that I became this someone
I am my own armour
I am my own anchor
I am what I am

I am the phoenix that rises again from its ash time and again
I am the fire I needed
I needed a hero
So that’s what I became

I am me
And I think that’s all I ever need to be.
