Feeling Abated

I admit these times around i feel highly abated.

I walk around school tired because i lose sleep and i hate it.

I roll onto my back every night losing hours n hours of sleep.

I promise my body i'll rest it, but dats a promise i dnt keep.

I try so hard all the time to stay calm,but I fell dangerously irritated.

I'm irritated get out of my face plz my space is getting invaded!

My will power is starting to fail, succumb,deplete, diminish.

I'm on a breath-taking journey to live my life, but i can't help feeling that I won't finish.

Being a man means admitting that you need help and u need it fast.

I'm feeling abated can't u see it's not long that I can even last.

Watching my friend die I felt so enraged I wish me and Him{Almighty} could fight.

I confided my father w/ this, he thought me wrong, I thought me right.

Do sins catch up 2 u to da point you applaud yourself every morning you awake?

Or am I coming to grips w/ my alter-ego that religion is fake?

Let's not get carried away before u say or do something you'll regret.

You think you feel abated, u only 17, u aint seen nothin yet.

It's all good, because I survive by keeping a higher hunger.

Like Kanye said: "What doesn't kill me can only make me stronger."
