The End

Do you ever wonder why
other people
tell other people
that they should die
and then turn around
and say
"it's okay to fall apart sometimes."

The irony.

Oh, do you not think
that they exist?
Because they do
and you cannot compromise
something I know to be true.
I have seen it with my own eyes
and I have dared to cry
in front of them
but still stand my ground
and, at least, try to remain an inspiration
for the people who know my past
and how it lasts
and how it will wake you up in the middle of
the night
and it is frightening
to feel that hollow heart beat
in your chest cavity.
Try not to cry
but inside, you just want to die
like they told you to.
Yeah, I know that feeling.

Oh!
How about the friends
you never thought would end but-
THEY JUST LEFT.
And now here you stand
wondering why
you ran out of time
and wow, how you wish
you were dead.
Just like they want you to be.

Or when you're wondering why
you were ever born in the first place.
It's not even that you want to die
it's just that you wish you didn't exist.
But do you even really exist?
Because
HOW CAN YOU EXIST WHEN YOU ARE
SWEPT UNDER THE RUN LIKE DIRT!?
and do they even know how much it hurts?
You hold everything on the edge
and you think it's the end.
Just like they want it to be.

And maybe, this is the end
because on the matter of life and death
not everything ends so happily.
TV makes it seem better than it could be.
But oh, this could be the end.
