Why do you mock me, laugh at me
Like I’m some kind stranded animal
Look at me in such a way
Like I’m a man eating cannibal
You shout at me, you beat me
Like I have no emotions
Chase me, ridicule me
With so much devotion
As though you were sent down
To make my life a living hell
As though my life is meaningless
And everyone but me can tell
Why do you hate me?
Despise me so….
Tell me I am just a waste of breath
I don’t think I can take it anymore
Now I’m sure
I have no purpose at all
That this dream I call a life
Has come to its down fall
And now I crawl….
Making my way to death’s door
Begging him to take me out of my misery
I’m tired of being on the floor
The pain I try to ignore…
But it’s too much to bear
I want it to end right away
Because it seems no one cares.
My life… pointless as it may be
Still seems to have meaning in my heart
Yet all who see me think otherwise
And that’s what’s tearing me apart!!!
