I want to live,
Instead, it seems that I’m barely surviving.

I want to get out.

I want my crush to love and hold me,
Instead, he kicks and hits me.

I want to get out.

I want my best friend to listen to me,
Instead, she says she does not care.

I want to get out.

I want more friends,
Instead, they seem to be too cool.

I want to get out.

I want to get math,
Instead, it beats my brain into a pulp.

I want to get out.

I want the world to be perfect,
Instead, it just earns more flaws.

I want to get out.

I want to get of my skin and run,
Instead, I stand in my place.

I have to get out.

This poem reallt spoke to me. So many people really feel like this. If your life is really like this, I suggest you talk to someone about it. I know whenever I feel like this, it always helps to talk to someone you trust. You have a real talent. keep writing!!
