Why can’t you see my smile

Why do you only see my scars

 

Don’t you see all these names are so vile

Why won’t you let me reach for the stars

 

How can you not care how I feel

How can you not see that I am a person too

 

Why do I have to live by the cards you deal

How would it feel if I were you

 

Do you like being called gross or fat

Do you like being called weird or a freak

 

What if someone said you look like a rat

What if someone told you your life is a loosing streak

 

How about if when you begged for help

And all they said was silly girl seeking attention

 

When every scream and yelp

Could never have enough extension

 

Wouldn’t you also get weary

Wouldn’t you want to give up

 

The last girl to cross your path is dreary

Because that girl had already been told to grow up

 

That girl begged for someone anyone

But no one came so now

 

Now that girl is done

She is stuck in a bow

 

She has lost too much blood

She can’t get up

 

She should’ve felt like a rose bud but you made her feel like a flash flood

Now she is on her way to Heaven where she can be built back up

 

Every day you see my scars and call me names

You bank on the chance that I am strong enough not to relapse

 

But I am weak and tired of your games

Today I can’t help but collapse

 

Tonight I will meet the last angel you made

Because her hand is the one guiding me to the light

 

Tomorrow I hope your games are done being played

Tomorrow I hope you realize we fought a hard fight

 

Please I beg of you stop making people fight

I promise if it were you you would also long for the light
