Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

My tear drops fall
As I analyze my life
How would things have been different
dwelling on the past
Wishing for things that can never be
All I do is bring myself down
I have to be strong
Accept the things I can’t change
Learn to deal with his pain
Life is hard deal with it
That’s what I tell myself
As I try to stop the tears
But they keep coming
And no amount of kind words can make them stop
This pain that I feel will never be gone
It will just hide away
Locked deep inside my heart
Until something reminds me of him
Then the full force of that day hits me again
And my tear drops fall
As I analyze my pain
How c could things have been better
Dwelling on the bad
Wishing for things that should never be
Trying to pick myself up
I look for strength from within but all I see is weakness
I have to stop trying to change things out of my control
Accept the pain and move on
Life is hard
Deal with it
That’s what I tell myself
As I try to stop the tears
But I can’t deal with it and they won’t stop
The pain I feel wont ever cease to tear me up inside
Only in death will I feel peace
And only in death will I no longer cry
