I’m a tangled mess of rage and hate and pain
With a heart that cares and cares and cares
Until I rip it from my chest and it remains beating in my hands
People say I am too intense
People say I am exhausting
My whole life I have been told there is something wrong with me
Even by those with the best intentions
And those so small they go without mention
What do you think that does to a person?
When even those who claim love and friendship
See you as an anomaly
Or is that just the mirror?
Myself looking at me?
Knowing that I don’t fit in
Sick of trying
But it’s these secrets I keep that make me feel like I’m dying
And the only breath I can take is when I am rhyming
It’s a breath I take it so that I can finally scream
Not to be heard, no this scream is for me
A scream to say I am tired and sick
A scream to say that I don’t want this
I am done with being the common denominator of betrayal
Is it my own choices that lead me down this path to hell?
Or is it fate or destiny or those other things in which I don’t believe
I don’t care anymore I only desire reprieve
Solace and rest that I thought that I would get
But here I am alone and screaming
I wish I was dreaming
So let your freak flag fly high
And scream if you’re with me
