It Wasn't Okay

She’s mangled from the past she’s known
Spent years alone
Never known the love of another
Just abuse from her mother
He tells her “It’ll be okay. It’ll be okay.”

Blending in was never her thing
Too many worries to bring
Razors stop the pain
A never ending dance in the rain
She wracks her brain “It’ll be okay. It’ll be okay.”

Everyone says I’ll get through this
Don’t welcome deaths kiss
It’s not okay. It’s not okay

Cries alone in an empty room
No light from the moon
The edge gets closer 
Thoughts of hope push her over
They told her “It’ll be okay. It’ll be okay.”

Pills labeled toxic
Tired and getting sick
This is the end of the game 
Only have society to blame
They put out her flame “It’ll be okay. It’ll be okay.”

Everybody said I’d get through this
But I welcomed deaths kiss
It was never okay. It was never okay.
