Why am I fighting to live, when I'm just living to fight. Why am I trying to see when there ain't nothing in sight. Why am I trying to give when no one gives me a try. Why am I dying to live, when I'm just living to die.


You promised you wouldn't leave, then gave a slight yawn. But before I even noticed, the next day you were gone. I'm stuck here helping the family stay strong, not realizing I needed the support all along. Since you died i've asked the family how you die, no one would give me a striaght answer, I always wondered why. I used to hate you for leaving, I used to be mad. Until I found how at your grave, now I just feel sad. As each day goes by, I move on each day. Wondering if I would find peace someday. I know it wasn't your fault, you didn't choose to die. I realized you lived your life, now it's time for me to live mine. I'm writing this for a reason, your probably wondering why. And beacause I didn't get the chance to say this then, now I just wanna say goodbye.

Awsome ryhming... but you should break it up into smaller paragraphs, it would flow so much better and you would accentuate the more powerful spots.. but thats just my opinion. good job. keep writing.
