My life used to be sweeter than an orange peel
When I was younger and before I knew what was real
All the little mistakes that I made when I was little
They do not count because I did not know any better
Because when I was younger I thought that I was clever
Ever since I reached the eighth grade
My life has taken many sharp turns
Long, hard and impulsive ones
All of which I have learned from
But I'm only human
And I realize that I make mistakes
What kind of world would I be living in
If things were ran in a different way
And I'm not going to lie
I'll admit that in most cases that I was wrong
And that most of my problems were self inflicted
But I just pulled myself together and stayed strong
Back then I was young and I acted on impulse
But now in the eyes of the law I am seen as an adult
And unfortunately I have a past that I am not proud of
But that's just part of growing up
Or is it?
Sometimes things just happen and there is no way you can stop it
But let me just get to the point
I have assaulted a principal... so they say
I have been expelled from school
I've been to jail for that
And domestic assault too
I've fought with my mom
And I've fought with my dad
I guess you can say that a normal life
Is something that I've never had
I've been on depression pills
I've cursed out my parents... but who doesn't?
I've called my mom a bitch
Which I know she will never forgive me for
I am always arguing with everybody in the house
I just want things to get better
I guess I never really saw these things coming
But I've learned from them and that's all that matters
In the future I'll try to be a better person
And try to walk away when problems arise
