Why Have I Still Not Learned?

-

When will I learn my lesson

__not to put my own 2 cents in?

All I get is tortured until I die inside

Every enemy I get

__always succeeds on getting me back

But I just never learn

__to not start shit with people

I've only learned not to repeat

__the same mistakes

But I'm just making new mistakes

Well, that's not enough change for me

Why can't I grow a brain

__and know not to take things too far

____ever again?

Why can't I be rid of my shortcomings?

Why am I still me?

Why can't God correct my baggage?

All I keep doing is causing damage

All I keep getting

__is punishment after punishment

____after punishment

And it's just not changing

I'm still never satisfying my enemies

__with any suffering they put me thru

I'm just forced to go thru more pain

Again and again and again

And again and again and again

I wouldn't be surprised

If I am still being fucked over

Even AFTER I die!

But that's just LIFE, right?!

FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
