Favorite Quote:
"When one cannot bear to be alone, it means we do not properly value the only companion we have from birth until death, ourselves."

It's so unfair that when I cry

These tears are not mine

That when I scream

You steal away my voice

It's so unfair that when I sing

You gag me

Or when I cheer

You tie me down

Now I'm fighting a battle

That's impossible to win

And my blood is boiling

From all you sin.

Confined by your laws,

My life in your jaws.

You're strangling me now

With your ideas of what's right

You're suffocating me now

With this repeated plight

You're killing me now

And I can't stop it

Because you're killing me now

And the dead don't cry


The author's comments:
I wrote this two years ago when I was twelve, it started out as lyrics to a song I was writing, but soon evolved past basic lyrics into something that I couldn't fit into piano or guitar notes.
