This poem is based on losing it all and how life can be cruel

It seems only yesterday
My life had it all
But now that ive stumbled
Iv taken the fall

My parents dont like me
My girlfriends a cheat
I have nowhere to live
I have nothing to eat

Ive lost all my money
Ive lost my friends to
I have nothing to live for
I have nothing to do

My outlook is pointless
My future looks grim
Its time to decide
If i sink or i swim

So here comes the water
The wave crashing down
I feel helpless against it
So i let myself drown

Im sinking right under
Im sinking down deep
Am i still living
Or am i asleep

I push to the surface
And take my last gasp of air
And utter three words
Life isnt fair..
