A Reason To Die.

You give them your all

Yet they still stand and watch you fall


It's the smile that you force to your face

When inside you're feeling like a worthless disgrace


Why is it that even when you try

They still snatch your will to rise up and fly


Why is making them happy, proud, so tough

Even when you're doing everything you can, it isn't enough


They still treat you like you're a stranger

Cast their eyes away, clench their jaws like you're danger


Harsh comments invade there speech

Insults fly like knives through their teeth


Each word an unexpected blow to your gut

They're the reason you find relief when you cut


You're thrown back and forth like a ball in a game

You surrendered to grief, and they're to blame


So you gave up the fight to live

Even if they asked, you couldn't forgive


Drop down to your knees

Let the hope in your painfully cease


They're supposed to love you; it feels like betrayal

In their eyes you're nothing but an epic fail


So from yourself you try to hide

They're the reason you turned to suicide
