Them.

Of this world,the people
Why do they cry and mourn
Why do the people
Hurt themselves 'til they're torn
Why do all these people
Think they know the truth
But really all they know is
That they hope what they think is not true
The people of thi sworld
Think they are not fit to love
They suspect just because the ways guys act
That they are worthless,so they tear their skin and cut
They rip themselves wide open
Just to feel the pain
So they can forget the hurtful past
And watch themselves then bleed
The people want to stop so bad
They want to end it now
They want to hurt themselves no more
But what other way can they forget
Why do these people
Wishthey were someone else
Why do all these people
Risk for him all that they have felt

This is amazing! I love all of the questions and descriptions, and it really gets your point across well. I totally agree with you!

Kind of true but you have to wonder the truth of all those questions..I am glad I am not like them.Some things can also be expressed through poetry,so you never know.
