What happens ?
What happens when you're whole just by the outlook,
But on the inside you've broke into a million pieces
What happens when a blank fills every page of your book
And you've become so hard that there's no more tears.
What happens when the smile on your face lies
And the eyes are hesitant to tell the truth due to fear
Of any kind of relationship, and all types of ties
And you question yourself about everything you hold dear.
What happens when you exist but don't live,
You breathe to answer to a responsibility,
to return the favour and to give
All back to the people that you call family.
What happens when the sense of purpose in your life
Is just to live a monotonous life and die,
While the time between the birth and death is filled with strife,
And for your survival, you finally ask the question 'why?',
What happens when you finally close your eyes to sleep,
Hoping that if you don't wake up the next day there'll be someone who'll weep,
Tell me what happens not because I want to know
But to experience what it feels when it happens, once before I go!
