The new kid in school
A blank canvas to paint
Alone in the corner,
To get out he can't wait.

Everyone thinks that he is just the new kid
Who doesn't have friends
Yet. He has a story
And no one knows how it ends

He knows they won't care
Because no one ever does.
I was everything to him,
But now there's no more us.

I know he was hurt
And I know that he cried,
But I just wasn't ready
And because of me he died

I found him in the bathroom
An empty bottle on the floor
A few pills upon a note
Taped upon the door

Addressed to me I began to cry.
He knew I'd be the one
To find him lifeless;
He was finally done

I was his best friend
And he was mine
But more went wrong,
I would come to find

His father had left
Leaving him behind
With a heroin addict mom
To keep him in line.

He said he couldn't do it
So I told him to try
Alone and abandoned
He fell to the sky

I couldn't help but wonder
Who he could have been
If his life was different
If this time he could win.

Being the new kid in school,
With a blank canvas to paint
Friends by his side
For tomorrow he can't wait.

This is understandable that cash can make people autonomous. But what to do if one doesn't have cash? The one way only is to receive the home loans or just bank loan.
