It will get better

People saying that it will get better


When


When will it get better?


Living through hell each day


They don’t know what they are doing


And it gets better?


When we feel hopeless


We live through our own nightmare


Each morning we wake up


Knowing that it’s a horror movie continued


We are the first to go


When will it get better?


That’s what we want to know


When the fear follows us home


Like our own personal killer


The mirror is like a fatal car crash


We can’t help but look


We start to see what they see


The thoughts start


Starting with never feeling happy


To sometimes we wish we were dead


We start to lose our hope


Life getting better becomes a dream


But you still tell us it will?


When we are losing our wills to fight


When we don’t see the light


The tunnel becomes endless


When will it get better?


Each day knowing it won’t


These words of wisdom


Don’t seem so wise


So you start to tell us more lies


Like kids are cruel


A common knowledge


We’ve known for years


You think kids are cruel


Try being the ongoing joke


The ones who try so hard


Those who feel like we fail everyday


Try being different


The losers the geeks


You don’t know cruel


Until you switch with us


Your advice is useless


We know what we see


We know the cruelty


We know the fear


So you tell us to rise up


To look forward to a future


This advice sometimes comes too late


Sometimes the future is as bleak


As the life we live each day


We can’t see the light


We see a way out


Out of the fear


Out of the depression


Death is the only way


 


Some of us will rise up


And heed your advice


But for everyone of us


Theirs one who lost a life


We need you to act


We need you to say


That this will stop


I’ll make it stop today


When you feel that there’s no way out


Telling us it will get better is no help


The future needs to come today


Every life loss


Is one that could have been saved


We need actions not words


We need to know that you’ll be there


We can’t wait for it to get better


When we feel like no one cares
