Teenage Years

Thu, 04/01/2021 - 17:12 -- HailsM

To feel alive

A girl cuts into her skin

While another girl cries when she's told

She was never loved by her boyfriend

 

A boy is left with broken bones

After he endures a vicious beating

A young girl is teased about her weight

And decides to stop eating

 

A girl was raped repeatedly

Until she blows out her brains

And leaves her distraught mother

To clean up the stains

 

Another boy does cocaine

While a girl makes herself throw up

To feel a sense of self-control

And they both become corrupt

 

A boy is hopeless

And grabs a knife

And they say these are supposed

To be the best years of our life
