At your weakest you learn to be at your strongest.

I’m riding this roller coaster and it’s going at light speed
The air around me burns and the pain it makes me bleed
Up and up I climb, happy and joking up to the top
Flying down, crying and griping on the drop

It’s getting old, this carnival ride
And though I want to, I can’t hide
The world is crashing around me slow
I’m losing all sense of the things I know

The universe is so happy and great!
I’ve made that switch, not a minute late
Up and up I climb again
Emotions going from three to ten

I push my friends away and then I drag them back
I smile real wide and then it cracks
I want to cry, I want to sing
I just can’t figure out anything

I can’t cry and I can’t laugh
Why can’t I cut it all in half?
Cut out all the deep down lulls
Cut the griping and the numbing nulls

Keep the quite amazing highs
Ditch all that and let me fly
I’m getting sick of this roller coaster ride
Please, just let it be a smooth even glide…

Sometimes being a teenager is so hard. It's like when you just have to get it out, but you can't. And it seems like the littlest things will set you off, and the small things will make you happy. I can't ever decide when I'm upset or not. It's aggravating...
