I get these really dark thoughts sometimes like maybe I’m not supposed to be here. 
I get these really dark thoughts sometimes like what if I didn’t exist? 
I’ve never thought I would have a long life 
I’ve never given much thought to my future 
And now that everything is changing, I can’t see past the mirror. 
I can’t see past what’s now and can’t see what’s ahead to come 
I only see my sorrow and the sickness I will become 
The me I knew is leaving now, 
Maybe she was never here 
But I can’t stop to wonder 
Is this reality or fear?
