Once upon a time

there was a guy

who loved to use drugs and get high

 

he wanted the pain to go away

so he pushed everyone aside

 

he ran his palace 

from day to night

and didn't let anyone inside

 

he hid his treasure far beneath

that no one can seem to find

 

he’s been hurting for far too long

and seems like he just wants to die

 

the pain he suffers is far too strong

it pushes him down to the ground

 

he can't get up

he's way too weak

to fight the inner ache

 

he lays on the ground while everyone laughs

and can't seem to get a break

 

he has a fuse

that everyone lights 

just to see him spark

 

he bites 

he growls

he spits

he yells

but can't seem to getaway

 

he had enough one day

and stood up to his feet

he was no longer easy to defeat

 

he baked the pain into a cake

and shared it with his friends

 

he had no secrets he wanted to hide

so he let it all descend 

 

far away it went below

deeper than it ever has

 

he thought he was good

but that was a lie

he still felt the same inside

 

he tries to tell

but can't get it out

so he shows it in actions instead

 

he shows the pain to others

so see what he has to offer

 

trust me its never good

so don't ever take in personal

he hurts the ones he loves the most

because that's what happened to him
