Life Is A Pain

I've been away for sometime.
Trying to figure out this life and where I will be.
So many obstacles coming towards me,
I see loved ones dying cause of mistakes they made.
Drugs not being my lifestyle,
but having a man be my addiction.
Trying to get rid of this pain,
Not knowing how to overcome each day.
I still find myself standing strong,
with my head held high.

My little sisters,
not understanding why sissy can't be around.
I'm so far away.
Seeing a little girl cry,
makes my heart shatter,
makes it break.
All this pain that I have to bear,
and only being 15.
Watching mommy be doped up,
so much she can barely see.
Trying to take away a man,
the only thing keeping me sane.
I'm going crazy in this life,
still wondering where I will be.
What should I do,
please tell me..

    Being only 15 and being away from your family is hard. I understand. I'm 15 myself and recently moved 5 states away from my own alcaholic mother and older sister. It gets hard, but just push through. Live your new life to the fullest and let your little sister know that you will always be there for her, even if it is just over the phone. This was a great write. I love it...
