when you want to die

When you want to die, you have no fears, you look back on all those pointless years, and have nothing to show but your pointless tears, when you just want the world to open its ears! What’s not happening for you, does for your peers, while your father sits back and drinks the beers. Do you know what it feels like, to have people laugh in your face? When all you want to do is disappear without a trace? With no one to embrace, and people put you in your place and you’re the only one running, so you won the race, but JUST because you set the pace. Do you know why you try, when every time you fail all you do is cry? Life is nothing but a lie, wait till you dry, and you still don’t know, so you always ask why. Do you just want to fly? Leave without saying goodbye? And you know you can’t wait, for life to go by, and every other day, you hope you fry, and what is life when you just want to die? Well life isn’t what you think, it’ll punch you in the eye.
