Your Life

You think you’re the only one going through this shit
Well there’s one to many others
Look at me
Look in my eyes
I’ve seen your pain
I’ve felt the same disgrace
I watched my mother suffer
And cave
I watched my father flame
I watched and I tried to innocently be brave
Don’t block me out
Because I don’t know how it feels
To live a broken life
Wishing your reality wasn’t real
I know damn right what it’s like
To try so hard not to hide
To try so hard to make this life right
Maybe if I change the world
I will have meaning to life
But hun that effort won’t change what stills lingers in the back of your mind
You can help a one you can help a million
But until you help yourself
It’s not your life
Yes
Live for others
But also live YOUR life
