What went Wrong.....
Well Iím fifteen years of age and my entire body is full of rage. Why did this have to happen to me, seriously I swear Iím only fifteen. Innocence and youth just taken away, everything ruined in just one day. Why do some people act so cruel or maybe it was me just being a fool. I thought it was safe to talk to that guy, go for a walk and stare at the sky. When he started to touch me I thought it was nice then I looked in his eyes and they were like ice. He didnít really hear me when I said no, he said itíd be ok just go with the flow. It was hurting so much I couldnít help but cry, I was screaming in my head Ďplease just let me dieí. Now my period is late and Iím taking the test, Iíll just cross my fingers and hope for the best. The results are back and Iím having a baby, what am I gonna do I canít even take care of me. I canít tell anyone, what would they say? Get an abortion, sorry mum, no way. I guess now itís time to say goodbye, either to my family or to my life. !
So goodbye mother who never really cared and goodbye father who was never there. Iím taking my baby to live our lives, fuck all the pain and fuck all the lies.
Love is the cause of heartache and pain
Everyone keeps saying the same
I have to wonder what weíre all doing
Itís like biting on a rock, then keep chewing
Why do we repeat the same mistakes twice
Then ask ourselves Ďhey, what happened to my life?í
Stop winging and bitching to everyone you know
Think about what youíre doing and have some control.
Just out of reach you always were
always fading to a distant blurr
Never were you in my grasp
always wearing that ice blue mask
I am forever chasing something long gone
just starting to realise i'll never belong
Constantly stumbling losing my feet
can't seem to win against this beast
Then i find your mask on my face
suddenly it's an entirely different race
It was me out of reach all along
i don't think i can be this strong
How do i make myself loveable
when i'm so goddamn untouchable.
