If only it’d disappear,
A world smiling without it,
No more shedding tears.

It lets us show no contentment;
It’s holding you behind from what you want.
It doesn’t let you shine,
And at most times it’s unpleasant.

Your dreams are at stake;
You’re distracting yourself in your head.
You fear you might break,
Better to work through it instead.

It’s up to you if it will be conquered
Or leave your desires faded;
Once you’ve pushed through, you’ll be honored
And at last be glad you’ve made it.
