- What Matters
You don't know me.
Did you know
Of the different ways I hide insecurity?
How I tend to cry
Myself to sleep every night?
How I stand my ground
But brace myself for getting pushed down?
How easily I can fake a laugh
Then turn around and want to fall apart?
And how I sometimes do
And it costs me more than I'll ever have?
How I tend to lose my mind
And deal with the pain in the worst of ways?
How each day I live a lie
Hide this f***ed up place I'm supposed to call a home?
What goes on behind closed doors
How I scream until I can't breathe anymore?
How I make the same mistakes
Hour after hour, every f*****g day?
Why I even write all this s*** down
Because I'm too afraid to even open up my mouth?
How I let the pain release
Thinking, no one knows what it's like to be me?
How once I thought of suicide
But never had the guts to actually do it?
How I always tell myself I'm better than that
But still live on in a present my past has ruined?
How a hidden depression resides in me
And I'm playing a game I know I won't win?
You think you have a right?
To say I'm useless and have no friends or life?
Did you know all of these things?
Before you went on and judged me?
No you didn't.
So let me live this messed up life the way it should be.
Thanks to you
You made all faith in that die.
You don't know me
So stop pretending you do.
Stop being one more problem in this f***** up life.
Honestly, it's the least you could do.
