School

School
They say they are here to help,
Yet have never actually helped.
They say they are there,
They are nowhere.
I don't see why they hate me,
Maybe they just can’t see.
All this rage,
I want to change.
I hate who I have become,
Yet I'm still so young.
I try to do good,
They never really understood.
I try,
But all I do is cry.
I hate this place, 
They act like it’s a race.
I'm supposed to be learning,
Yet all I do is concerning.
Always in trouble,
It’s become a struggle.
Nobody ever wants to hear what I have to say,
One day when I’m doing better than they always did maybe they will regret what they didn't say.

Story of My Life

I am lost inside,
I don't know where to hide.
How do I get out of this Mess,
I witness death.
I feel dead,
All these thoughts inside my head.
I try to smile,
But it's been a while.
There is nothing left of me,
Yet I plea.
I try my best,
But I am only a pest.
I wake up everyday,
But have nothing to say.
I spend my time alone,
With nowhere to call home.
Happiness feels so far away,
Getting farther everyday.
I don't sleep as much,
I am afraid to be touched.
I try to forget my Past,
But it keeps coming back.
I have changed,
I’ve experienced pain.
Why do I dream,
If I’m afraid to live the dream?
Would the world be better off without me?,
How about we see?
I try to act like I care,
But it's just not fair.
I say I'm fine,
But I’m dying inside.
They think I'm tough,
 It’s just so rough.
I'm slipping in school,
No way to be cool.
They think I'm a badass,
There is a reason for my sass.
What they don't know is that I'm turning to ashes.
I am too deep,
I’m losing sleep.
Nobody knows me,
They just let me be.
I get made fun of,
What have I done?
I hide everyone from the real me,
They wouldn't still see me the same.
I try to talk,
But I don't want you to walk.
You say you will always be here for me,
How could that be?
I don't know what to do, 
Where do I go?
Nobody knows how hurt I am, 
Frankly they don't give a damn.
Everyday is a mystery,
I'm just lost history.
Hope you are all happy
This is what you did to me
This is me

I Need To Get Help

Music used to help,
Now I just want help!
I worked my summer away,
Only way I was able to stay.
I want to be a better person,
What a fantasy I live in.
Yeah I am smart,
But I also lost the heart.
I have those who say they’re friends,
But that all depends.
I’m told to get over it,
I’m stuck in a pit.
I’ve lost the will,
They tell me to just chill.
I don't know where I’m going,
All I know is I’m sinking.

Books

They give you an outlook on life.
Full of words,
Full of new worlds.
They are just waiting to be read,
They are never dead.
You can take them anywhere,
Take them everywhere!
They have a story to tell,
Don't we all.

Thought Of Mine

I try to make them proud,
I'm too loud.
I don't sleep,
Still counting sheep.
I walk away,
What's the point anyway?
Say I’m always on my phone,
Its to escape this “home”.
Is it too late?,
I want to change my fate?
I’ve learned from my pain,
It's not just a game.
I want a future,
Don't need a preacher. 
I tried to escape,
What a mistake.
I saw a light,
Maybe I’ll take flight. 
I don't want to make him leave,
But it's just so easy.

For the Life of Me

Must say it is okay,
When I'm wasting away.
I have to hide,
I live a lie.
I am a waste of space,
Just want to leave this place.
People say I’m strong,
Listen to my song.
I am  a freak,
I get called a geek.
Always in trouble,
Found in the rubble.
I wanna clean up my act,
I’m not strong enough for that.
