40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
Do I expect to change
The past I hold inside
With all the words I say
Repeating over in my mind
Some things you can’t erase
No matter how hard you try
An exit to escape
Is all there is left to find
Close my eyes
Let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time
To waste, Asking why
