trying so hard

trying so hard
slowly shedding
material trappings
letting go
without regret
layer by layer
trying so hard
ignoring the ache
such stupid longing
surroundings will change
withering to new
awakened perhaps
trying so hard
keeping it inside
releasing in small bursts
melancholy so easy
drifting so simple
towards dreams
their own traps
trying so hard

Do you ever feel as though you have so much to say but when you finally have the chance something stops you?
