2am

By Charlotte Nitschke

CW: self-harm


2am is not for the happy ones

with smiles on their faces

2am is for the broken ones

who don’t know how to face this

it’s for the beaten up and broken

the torn and the bruised

the ones who’ve tried to defend themselves

but keep on getting used

the ones who aren’t truly okay

but tell the world they’re fine

when really they are struggling

and broken deep inside

2am

it is where it begins

2am 2am

it is where we grow our wings

2am 2am

sitting in the dead of night

sunrise means faking being alright

its the ones who lay awake

and contemplate their life

the ones who take a blade to skin

to simply end their strife

cuz 2am’s not for those

with bright happy faces

no 2am is for the ones

who don’t know where their place is

the ones who aren’t truly okay

but tell the world they’re fine

when really they are struggling

and broken deep inside

And we look around to the world

see everyone smiling

so we try to replicate them

but inside we’re dying

we’re dying, dying dying!

2 am

it is where it begins

2am 2am

it is where we grow our wings

2am 2am

sitting in the dead of night

sunrise means faking being alright.
