For the better



I hate this life I am living
I wish I would just die
Everyone hates me anyway
Not like I would be missed by many
My life is nothing but a lie
I don't even know what "happy" is like
I have not been happy in a very long time
Yes I smile, but it's a lie
I don't want to talk about my life
I let all believe I am fine
Hiding my pain, it's what I do best
Saving my tears for when I'm alone in my head
Cutting myself to feel
Best feeling I have discovered
The pain I feel is like no other
Ending my life will be for the better
