Everyone says there is hope.

They say that there is a chance.

A new treatment.

They will try and test.

They will say it is going well.

But I know better.

No matter how many things they try.

No matter how much money they spend.

I will be dead soon.

I've known for as long as I can remember.

Don't think me a quitter.

I would like to live.

But after all these years.

Here.

I don't know what living is.

I have never “hung out.”

Never shared a secret.

Never had a friend.

There is no life for me.

I was never expected to live.

So I had no education,

no fun.

It would have been “too taxing” they said.

I haven't been allowed to leave my bed for years,

so how would I know?

I was never expected to live.

I will die here.

I wish you good luck.

Live for me, would you?

I hope that people will begin to realize that is no real point in life. We can only enjoy the small pleasures, try for happiness, and try not to waste what has been given us.

Sad :( Kinda seems like the girl from the movie My Sisters Keeper would write this.

It's really up to you.  Your perception of it.

I've got my perception, but everyone is different.
