You may not get what you want, but in the end what you got was so much better than what you wanted

Just about to break I sit there
Just about to fall off a cliff going nowhere

About to come crashing down on you
I don't even know what I'm about to do

When the water breaks, it breaks hard
Always drawing the losing card

Never knowing what I can really do
I'm about to destroy everything I ever knew

Destruction follows in my path
Because no one know how to do math

I try to be good, but know I'll fail
Someone will always have to wail

No one knows how close I really am
To cracking then destroying this confining dam

When it all breaks loose people shake their heads
Most times, I couldn't care less 'bout what they said

People try to help but no one can
Just as outcast as the Klu Klux Klan

When everythings gone, I see a sort of hope
Bringing people together who alone couldn't cope

Leading to hope from destruction and despair
Soom things will become good beyond compare

This was a symbol poem for my honors english class and I pretty sure a lot of teenagers feel like this
