I’m Doing Something Right

Untitled-2 - Copy

The blue sky fades to gray just about the same time my smile fades away.
The weather gets worse and I lose track of time,
But I’ve got good grades
So I’m doing something right.

I feel beaten down inside when people’s whisper seem to scream that I’m not good enough.
I don’t think it gets better but hey, it could be worse.
I’ve got a roof over my head,
So I’m doing something right.

The looks that people give me, all their smiles of approval;
I don’t know if it’s for me or for what I have achieved.
My brain is falling apart but I’ve got money in my pocket,
So I’m doing something right.

Even though the world is crashing and smashing and falling,
I’m standing amidst the apocalypse.
I might just be another person,
And maybe people don’t care,
But I think I’ve got some friends,
So I’m doing something right.

The voices in my head tell me I should be scared and
That I should just give up while I still have a chance.
I think I’m going crazy, but my doctor said I’m great,
So I’m doing something right.

I wonder if I should listen to the people I don’t know;
Give up,
Go away,
Don’t even try,
Don’t be great.
I’m falling apart inside, but it’s not hard to hide,
So I’m doing something right.

Time to relax is non-existent and
My troubles are near consistent.
No one knows what’s in my head.
No one knows inside I’m dead.
But hey,
I’m still breathing;
I’m still alive;
I’m still thinking;
I’m still trying for something I can’t see;
I’m still trying for something I can’t reach;
I’ve got the grades to show success;
I’m still on track, I’m still the best,
So I must be doing something right.
