Why Am I Here?

Why am I here?

I don't wanna be here

All this yelling and abuse

All this depression I have been through

Makes me wonder why I'm here

All this pain can easily be hidden by a smile

And even though 18 is only a "little while"

I don't wanna be treated like a usless child.

People I love are who make me happy

Not people who argue and make me unworthy

People that make me smile/comfort me at least

Are the ones that actuallymean well to me

Don't wanna stay trapped in my own conscience

I'm not the one who built this place

Where all I fell is haunted

By pain, emotional breakdowns, and love not wanted

I wanna be with the one that make me feel safe 

The feeling that only real love can bring

Not surrounded by so much hate...

My family
