You Don't Know My Pain

You don't know my pain. I cry myself to sleep, most nights.

I sit up many times worrying myself silly.

I feel like I'm in a hole, I just seem to sink deeper. 

Everytime I climb out, something seems to go wrong.

They say "It could be worse"...well of course...thanks.

But I'm in a struggle now so...yeah. 

You don't know my pain.

Is it wrong that I feel sad in the moment, I've had a lot on my mind.

My father passing, my mother's stability, me somewhat pushed into responbilities.

They say "Why didn't you ask for help"

Ha..well when you get stares are just flat out ignored...it hurts.

I felt so alone and didn't know where to turn.

Plenty of dark thoughts passed my mind.

So you don't know MY pain, it belongs to me.

Had a few moments of weakness...so pardon me.

But yet I manage to pull through.

This makes me stronger and a life lesson for the future.

So let me feel me pain...sorry I just let mine show....sometimes
