The day I saw a flash of red,

I couldn't decide,

Whether it was better to be dying or dead,

Or to comit suicide.


So many people say "be thankful for your life,"

But what have I to gain?

Only pain and misery,

The hated feelings that remain.


How can I convince them I'm human

Just like them?

Even though they make the same mistakes,

It's me they decide to condemn.


So should I say "goodbye cruel world?"

I think not!

Even though my world has turned

Into neglect thats left to rot.


No, I'll pick myself up and dust myself off

And live for another day,

Because the little bit of hope I have

Will carry me a long way.
