Mirror, Mirror

Standard

So many life times missing the same goal

So many life lines taking the same toll

When all the world is falling around you

Heart over head and your instinct drives you

To play the Martyr

 

How many times have you struggled through this

How many signs have you managed to miss

What is this pain you still choose to live through

Time and again this choice comes back for you

To play the Martyr

 

Change is so hard when you’re living a lie

It breaks your heart but you can’t hear its cry

It’s safer to stay in that which you know

You think you’re destined wherever you go

To play the Martyr

 

What is the reason you keep this so near

Is it just weakness or is it your fear

When will you learn, will you see what you’ve got

There’s nothing to lose if you decide not

To play the Martyr

 

Now we are back here, same lesson to learn

Now is my time and now it’s my turn

To walk away to be all I could be

To realise that no-one else needs me

To play the Martyr

 

The struggle feels so real here within me

The stress so high, anxiety shakes me

I must say “no” so I make this all end

Stand up, walk out and choose never again

To play the Martyr.
