I Know That Life Is All That I Want - Poem by Noah Body

Round and round and round I go
Where will I stop? God only knows

Up one street, the next I go down
First a smile and then a frown

People pay money to ride the big coaster
Now I get to ride my own rollercoster

Pills should do it but they're never enough
Stopping this shit is always so tough

Sad is my mood times one million
These sins of mine number a zillion

I hate the mirror, the face I see there
Wish I could punch it, stop it's mean stare

I'm under the bottom and over the top
When will it ever fucking stop?

My head tells me never, it's not in the cards
My life is in pieces, my heart in shards

But I've had good days, yesterday and before
I find myself always wanting some more

I know that they're out there somewhere
If I could find them then I wouldn't care

Tomorrow, as they say, is another day
I pray that it doesn't go this way

The tears they are falling
My heart strings are calling

Die say they, then it'll stop
But I am afraid to take that hop

The answer it may be, I am not sure
I just can't tell, my thoughts aren't pure

I know that life is all that I want
And I know I want to stop being a runt

Who cares where it goes? Why do I worry?
It's not like I have favors to curry

Die I should, I should exit this planet
Get out of this world and all that are on it

Put all of this world out of the misery
Of dealing with me and all the chicanery

For I am not worth the trouble it takes
To make your way though all of these snakes

I think that I've got to go now
This poem has grown long somehow
