Have You Ever? - Poem by Allie Whitehead

Have you ever?
Have you ever lived my life?
Spent one minute in my shoes?
If you haven't tell me why,
You judge me as you do?
Have you ever woken up one day,
And wondered if it was your last day on earth?
Have you ever left your house?
Unsure if you'd return?
Have you ever seen your friend?
Get shot outside his favorite store?
On drugs he hasn't used before?
Have you ever seem you friend die,
Have you ever seen you mom get beat?
By your step dad messed up on booze?
Well guess what? I have!
Have you ever had an unwanted pregnancy?
Forcing you to choose?
Have you ever sat beneath the stars?
Hoping god will hear you?
Have you ever seen you friend drive away?
After way too many beers
Have you ever had a friend experiment with weed?
Have you ever covered up quilt?
By doing a good deed?
Have you ever considered suicide?
As your only way out?
Have you ever tried to hide yourself?
Behind the things you say?
Have you ever wanted to protect,
Your friends and everyone in sight?
Have you ever felt so much pain?
You cry yourself to sleep at night?
Have you ever lived my life?
Spent one minute in my shoes?
If you haven't tell me why,
You judge me as you do?
