Only Sixteen

Can you believe I’m only sixteen
Seeing the world so black and white
You ask what could I have seen?
Nothing. Just an endless night

That glass is half empty
That flower is wilting
There is death aplenty
And I’m just starting

There isn’t comfort in life
I’m a realist
Find peace quicker with a knife
Never an optimist

Laugh if you will
Just trying to spare you the pain
Hatred can only kill
Embrace the acid rain

Everything must die 
Mothers cry
Fathers lie
And I just fly
