Happiness is only a theory.
Fate is my only enemy.

I am upset
I want to kill myself
I want to pull my hair out
I feel like having a tantrum would help
Maybe I should throw things out the window
Pretend that they don’t exist
I need to curse
Wish I wasn’t born
I feel as though the whole world is against me
Life doesn’t matter
Maybe I should run away
Pretend that they forgot about me
I need to scream and kick
Ask what can never be answered
I feel as though I’ve got it all planned
Then realize it’s childish
My only option I know
Is to cry

We all feel that we want to act like children when our emotins take hold, but sooner or later we realize it would be inappropriate to do so.

This can be taken from multiple perspectives, but in relation to acting like children, I find this piece rather humorous. You exaggerate a tantrum and I find that comical; great job
