I live in a world of please believe,
where hope floats until it finally sinks.
I live in a world of reality
that overshadows my world of make believe
as fast as my eyes can blink.
I live in a world where I cannot survive
without hope for better things.
and I live in a world where hope sometimes dies
in the wake that disappointment brings.
I live in a world of no matter what happens around me,
I have to find a way to go on.
and I live in a world of black and white
and a world filled with right and wrong.
I live in this world that I do not always understand
and this world that I do not always like.
but I live in this world and it is what it is
on brightest day and darkest night.
this is the world that I walk in.
this is the world that I sink or swim in.
this is the world that I live in.
please god help me to live in it right.
