No one wants to see the bad in the world. But that doesn't mean that it's not there.

On the outside, looking in,

it seems like I've got a pretty good life.

But they're not on the inside.

Getting hit. Getting hurt.

Crying myself to sleep.

Having a dream. Wanting out.

Risking my life. Because I don't want to be like my mother.

Abused by the world. Crying out for a better life.

Another life. I would trade mine for anything.

But no one bothers to come inside.

No one bothers to see what they don't want to see. The truth.

They just sit there.

On the outside, looking in.
