And just like that
I feel lighter, calmer, happier
Even though, I am technically a criminal
But in reality, I am just a teenager
I’m just a teenager that needs a break from the
mental health issues that seem to rattle around
my overcrowded skull

Scrolling , scrolling
Hoping to distract myself
From the thoughts that run laps in my head
Never stopping to admire
So maybe when I post
People might return the favour
And I can have that false sense of belonging
Looking for something to entertain me
Unable to find it
So my eyes glaze over
Games with no meaning

Loving you hurts
There are mornings I wake up, wondering if you survived the night
Hoping and praying that you didn't hurt yourself
Knowing that you probably
I worry I don't do enough
That I don't tell how much you mean to me enough
Waking up crying because I dreamt you had died
And it felt so real
If I could do anything to make stop your pain I would
But I'm p...

We make fun of others for not being original
While looking exactly like your group of friends

Who decides what’s deemed “cool”
Because I really don’t agree with a ...

Despite me wishing it was different, you and I are more alike than not. But the biggest difference between us is you only care about yourself.
You choose to drink, so you can forget, while I smoke up to not care.

Not care about the times you've said things I know you don't mean, because it's not...

You know I keep hearing that we’re experiencing all these epidemics. Obesity epidemic, gun violence epidemic, suicide epidemic, and the debt epidemic to name a few. The way I see it, we’re only suffering from one and that’s a hate epidemic.
We hate ourselves so either stuff our faces, or starve ourselves. We hate others, so we shoot up our schools, churches, clubs, and concerts. We hate the...

(Just a note, that this is supposed to be set in the suffragette era)
We have a dream
That one day we’ll be more than our looks

We have a dream
To have the possibility for success
To be more than wives, mothers, and maids
We want to have our chance at greatness
