Be who you are.More Like This
People are always going to tell you
Who to be and who you are
It's your job to say
This is me
Draw if you want to draw
Write if you want to write
Eat foods you want to eat
And do what you want to do.
Society has images
That we are all supposed to conform to
Be who you want to be
And not what other people tell you to be.
Just because you like
Something that no one else does
That you are any less of a person
Everyone is strange in their own way
And it will always be your job
To be who you want
And to do what you want.

and all that they say.
How about I bleed
and rub the juice in
just to feel some pain.
The sadness and dark
is always there
always just below the surface
I can never escape.
Never be free.
I smile and laugh with friends
and cry and scream all alone
when I just can't hide it anymore
I feel so alone
no one can help me.
I am missing so many parts
I can never be whole.
I am me and not enough
jaded and bitter
and all alone.
I see the "positive messages"
about thinking happy thoughts
and want to punch someone in the throat.
How dare you say that the reason I am sad
is because I just don't try hard enough.
Sick of trying to be happy and failing
of being not good enough for happiness
I have so many wonderful people in my life
and I still see the world through tears.
This is not a story about lost love.
It's a story of being sad despite having loved ones.
