"I won't if you don't want me to"
I want to, but I don't want to hurt you.

"I don't mind-really!"
I mind, but I don't want to hurt you

"I've been clean for years"
I drank last night, but I know it will hurt you.

"Nothing's wrong!"
So many things are wrong, but I don't want to hurt you.

What this is
Is a bunch of people
Doing their best
Not to hurt
Everyone else.

What this is
Is a bunch of people
Hurting so bad
That all they do
Is help others.
I've learned that basically what life is is everyone doing their best not to hurt everyone else. To those of you who are doing this: Darling, do something for you. Talk to him. Tell her. Sing what you want. Bring yourself out to lunch. Read a book because it's what you want to do.
God asks us to care for others. He doesn't ask us not to care for ourselves.
Take a moment and care for yourself.
I close my eyes lost in thought
Trying so hard to breathe
Hoping that the fight in my head
Would slowly fade

I feel the churning in my stomach
The fire that evokes in my skin
Increase my heart beat
All because of my mind

Then I stand up and smile
A smile so made that no one notices
That the girl laughing and talking
Is a stranger and a great actress.

Busted head , and ****** nose
Covered in dirt from my head to my toes
There's nothing wrong with living like this
All my clothes smell like ****
But I'm ****** up today and nothing's wrong

— The End —
