To endure this everyday,
I pray to God that I may
Have the strength
To stay alive the whole length

I sit in fear waiting
For the moment I’ve been hating
Everyday of my life
The moment that carries all the strife

I ask the question why
All the time while I cry
Why should I have to go through
The pain that they do

I hide myself form my friends
Hoping my secret ends
But still, every morning I wake up
And put on the make-up

Deep inside I know
That I need to go,
But I have nowhere
Because no one will care

So I stay where I am
Even though it is a jam
I guess I’ll have to endure
Until I find the problem at the core
