I Try


I step outside and walk around
Suddenly the day is over
It is no longer night
I no longer fell right
I do not feel like myself
I find my way back
But I do not find me
I try
Then I find myself going
Back and forth side to side
I don't find anything
Nothing at all
But then I find that I can't give up
And if I do
I would be giving up on myself
I try
So I continue my search for me
Finally I know the answer
Finding your true self
Isn't as hard as you imagine
Follow your dreams
follow your heart
That is the most important part
