it sucks to be so alone,

I remember when i was young it was just me and my brother leo,

hardly any parents and its harsh to be on your own when you fall into that chicago snow,

nobody wants to lend you a hand,

so you wonder and dont know why people dont want you,

its hard to carry on when no one loves you,

even harder when people dont understand the struggles you've survived.

i never had a home,

so i never had a heart,

because foster care always had me on the go,

they've tried to break me down.

I've never had much,

would be hungry as a kid because i never had money for lunch,

those were hard days and it would hurt to pray,

one day i wont have to ask for rides or take the CTA,

One day I'll be fine, Im screaming at myself saying"I GOTTA MAKE IT!",

my teacher tryna get through to me because of my behavior,

i once conetmplated suicide but all i could see were my brothers eyes,

theres so much pressure in my head and sometimesi just dont want to get out of bed,

i need a quiet and peaceful place to spend these quiet nights.

somewhere where i dont have to listen to people fight so i could unwind
