On My Own

Here I am sitting down and on my face is a long, long frown. I wish I could go to another part of town and find me a guy that's not a clown. I have a mother who lives so near, but does she visit? No because she doesn't care. I have a father who wouldn't even bother, to call his daughter, he would never know if I was murdered and slaughtered. I have a boyfriend who is so immature, but his ignorance I try to ignore, how he needs to learn so much more, he swears that he's so hard core, but the streets is all he knows and nothing more. I need a man and not a boy, one who'll pick up the news paper before a toy. He's a boy inside and out; "it's over" are the words I wish to shout. My best friend is special in many ways she could go on lieing for days and days, I think it's time we got some space before I end up punching her dead in her face. I have only one person who truly cares, but she is no longer physically here. Her words of wisdom are all I hear and she's the only one i'de allow to see me shed a tear, because only she can comfort me when i'm full of fear. I will try to get through this, I will win this battle. My heart and mind will unite and together we shall win this fight, I will try to get through this with all my might even if i'm full of fright. Walking through the dark,GOD will help me and shed his light.
