The Missing Piece

I was just a kid,
Lost without a father,
Tormented by peers,
So many things I feared.
Disease, loss of family
I dont know where to go,
So I hid out on cloud 9
Till I spot a smooth clear road.
But before I could,
The hole dug deeper
As it starts to rain
Cant climb out 
Mud slides and pain.
No one understanding
Is there anyone the same?
Still lost in this realm
So I choose another plain 
A dream I cant escape
But its not a nightmare
While everyones in reality
A shame I cannot share.
Im still so lost
This dream is all I have
Stuck between growing up
And happiness,
Which one will outlast.
Now my life is far from over
More hardships to come
But I believe in my happy ending
Before my time is done.
