try being me

I hear these stories about stress and strife
But I invite everyone to live my life
Women go crazy and murder those kids 
Life throws curves and they are on the skids
They rely on men and cry when they are alone
To drugs and alcohol they are prone
To numb the pain and the memories
But leave the children alone I beg you please
They can't speak up for themselves you see
It hurts to acknowledge, cause it used to be me
Who cried at night for my Mom and Dad
Whose birthday every year was lonely and sad
So to all of those people who let their minds go
Step into my memory and enjoy the damn show
Everyone has thoughts this much is true
But how would you like me to hurt you?
To gain your trust then push you back down
To always turn a smile into a frown
Watch the news and everyone will see
How truly tough it is trying to be me
