I need a Change (not me just inspired from a friend)

I burnt myself last night
For once in my life I felt alright

Pain was healing, Even if its wrong
I know the feeling wouldn't be long

It gave me power, a way of control
Even if it was, fortaking my soul

You will never understand, my way of being
Until you go through what I have been seeing

Drugs, violence, much hate inside
I feel im slipping, I need to confide

I dont want fall, but the cracks seem to big
Im burrying myself in a whole I didn't even dig

I need a hand, a shoulder to lean
If I don't get that, i'm not sure where I will be

This path i'm on, is a complete dead end
I need to turn around and make amends

Peace with you, and everyone I've hurt
Before it's to late and my heart disperts

Time for change, a new road to take
Hopefull one day i'll stop from mistakes

I know I wont be perfect, but it's not perfection I am after
Instead of a world of hate, Im looking for laughter

Happiness, with choices
A little guidance, from a few choice voices

I know, I can do it, I dont need pain
Its nothing but a moment of healing, and then complaints

In the end of time, I will better my inner heart
Im not going to let the old me tear the knew me appart

Im done with this path, It's filled with to many lies
If I dont change, the only outcome Is I could die
