Dont Let Me Live

I can remember how I was
A long time ago
So innocent and young
Free to play in the snow
How I can recall what great days they were
Now that theyre gone I feel so distant
Yet so near

I can see all the episodes
Of my mom and i
Going somewhere, driving away
With my dad no where in sight
But truthfully that was alright
I have no place in him
But he has a place in me
Don’t know where that place is right now
Only time will tell where he will be
Oh tell me where my life has been
Oh tell me where it will begin
When I find love? Money? Freedom?
Our lives never befin
Cause were all on the road to the end

I don’t wanna write a poem
Don’t wanna write a song
Cuz all I do is get it wrong
The words I speak are not true
Utter lies made to fool you
Don’t believe a word I say
The end of the word will happen yesterday
That would end my life
A release of my grief
Know not to you
But to me as a thief
Of others credit and merit in life
Please lord, have mercy on I
Please don’t make me live forever! ! ! !
Please lord, please just let me die
Soon oh dear soon
Just make me with and fall to the way
I have spent all my years
Trying to kill what I have lost in my life
But please have pity for me
Don’t make me survive
Just end it all and let me die

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
