Not as easy as a single layup

As the days go on and time flies by,
I really need to say goodbye
Things don't seem to be going very well,
The problem is, only I can tell
People say life is too short so live it up,
But life isn't as easy as a single layup
I'm the type of person that doesn't see the good things,
Because honestly I don't see the good that life brings
The world through my eyes come out to be bad,
Not only that, there are many more more things I can add
The suffering, the pressure, the bullying, the lectures,
And that's only the beginning to my story
A big factor of this negative side of my life would be my mom and dad,
When I can't seem to please them, of course it makes me sad
They expect a lot from me as you can see,
But when I try so hard, it only hurts me
If only life was easier, then maybe I can enjoy it
To mend my two worlds that have just split
By two worlds I mean what I really feel and what I act on the outside
One world for everyone and the other for me in which I hide,
Yet I have come to notice that seeing the bad things won't really help you,
Because no matter what, you'll make it through
Whether good or bad, there will be a better view
In life I mean, because now I believe
That life is too short for you to just leave
So you have to live the good life up,
It may not be as easy as a single layup,
But if it's bad, just start off new,
It will pay off, even if you don't have the slightest clue.

My life inspired me to write this. It isn't exactly how my life goes, but it is really close to it.
