No need to read this. I just needed to get this down.

Just because I'm in a stable family doesn't mean I feel loved

Being in a stable house doesn't make me feel safe

Having lots of friends doesn't mean I am happy


Sure, that makes me sound spoiled, but that doesn't make the depression go away

It doesn't make my anxiety stay at bay


Being reminded of my failures doesn't make me improve

I'm trying my damned hardest, and yet you disaprove


Why am I never enough

Believe it or not, I'm not that tough


There's a blatant favorite, and it sure as hell ain't me

So why can't you just let me be, well, me


"Oh, you poor thing" but it's always to someone else

What am I to you, but a lowly little elf?


I give hints to being miserable, but clearly you don't care

Why else would you never be there?


Oblivious to my sleepless nights

I wish I could talk to you, but it just doesn't feel right


Take away my communication

Worsen my situation


If only you knew

What this torture puts me through


If only you felt

The pain that is constantly dealt


Would you finally treat me as a human?

Nah, to me, you'll always be a leviathan
