Bring me to safety

I've been made to feel things I didn't want to feel I was numb for so long I forgot that my wounds were real I tried to escape but depression chased me I just need someone to bring me to safety If I could go back I wouldn't have acted so reckless To grow up I wouldn't have been so desperate I'd have appreciated being a teen but Depression made it hard I was smiling until foster care, bullies and my dad dying gave me scars No one knew how much I was struggling because I acted like I was fine dating numerous girls at the same time I couldn't be alone, I didn't know how I was trying to grab a hold of the legs that kicked me while I was down Hoping one would see my pain and try to help me instead But they Carried on kicking, this was right before my self-harming started Depression had me so tired, some says I couldn't get out of bed Poetry was helping me, but I've never been that great of an artist 6 years free from self-harm now but a lot of pain Remains in my scars Thankful for Eminem and Linkin Park, they were my light that came in the dark Not sure what's going to happen with us , but Megan Knowles you're the brightest flame in my heart I apologise because I probably shouldn't put your name in my art Every loss and mistake helped me to grow I had a Rocky start, but you should call me Ivan Drago with the way I'll deliver the killer blow Isn't it funny how some people start swinging, but don't want to carry the fight on Love has knocked me out cold, But I still hope I'll marry the right one Maybe it's not right with how I view things I usually feel better after a few drinks I'm not sure if I use ink Or if I abuse ink Listened to Linkin Park my whole life, now I break down everytime I think of Chester I can't drink this better Never got to thank him for his music and helping to keep my wings intact Sat here with tears in my eyes, but no amount of tears will bring him back So I'm Drinking Brandy straight, I don't want soda I just don't have any confidence when I'm sober It helps to ease the weight off my shoulders I was forced to grow up quick, now it seems I'm acting more immature as I get older There's no road signs to my destination, I need someone to take me I've been lost for so long I'm just trying to be found I'll swim through the sharks, I promise I won't drown But sometimes I just wish I had someone to bring me to safety
