Like A Broken Record

This is all I hear,
People crying out in the streets,
Mothers calling out to their kids,
Voices in my head telling me to quit.
And just like a broken record,
It goes on and on and on.
But I’m trying to be strong.
I’m trying to find a way to shake it off,
an to take off to somewhere else.
Where there are happy tears
From people always laughing.
A place where we come together,
And find serenity with each other.
But I just can’t find my way there.
I try to find another way
To make it all seem okay.
I often wish upon a Star
Just to take me somewhere far.
I often pray to the one above
To show me the meaning of love,
And to make sense of all this noise.
