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

    This reminds me when i was sixteen. when you grow up in a broken family it seems all you can do is shut it out by staying locked up in your room. To drain it out with music or videogames. Searching for someone to listen to you and understand. I was in your shoes four years ago. Even though it seems hopeless right now, i will tell you this. that pain doesn't last forever. All you can do is learn from it, because It only gets better.
