"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
— Dr. Seuss


Why don’t you ever see it from where I stand?
Why don’t you get what I’m telling you?
Why do you make it so hard just to be me?
I just want to feel at home and feel alive inside

Haven’t you ever been little girl?
Don’t you remember what its like to feel hurt?
Doesn’t something deep inside get broken
When you see the tears I cry because of you

I slam my door and turn the key
I want to get far away from you
This is supposed to be a safe haven
Somewhere I can be myself

I want to be able to cry to you
I want you to understand me
I want to be able to scream and shout
Speak my mind with all the fear

I slam my door and turn the key
I want get far away from you
This is supposed to be where I call home
So why do I feel so alone?

I need someone’s help
I feel like I’m drowning
I can’t take it much longer
My heads barely above water

I slam my door and turn the key
Just once I want you to run after me
I’m just a kid but you’re the adult
I want you to heal my hurt

The author's comments:
i wrote this a few days ago. recently I've been feeling pretty depressed and mad at a lot of different things and people. i found that writing song/poem things help me get out my feelings in a productive way.
