Life as a Teenage Boy


Run'en through life like it's a simple game
So confused don't know why I came
Who i am what I'm here for
Where did I come from Why don't I fear anymore I feel like a door
People just walk strait through me
I am the lion that won't be loved
But life is too short to be sad
Too short to sulk in my loss of love...
What should I do?
I have no clue
I'm in the dark
They keep saying I'm a sweet as a strawberry
But on the inside I'm as bitter as a rawberry
You know i everyday i get older
And i feel like the world is on my shoulder like a bolder
All this stress and depress bild'en up in my chest
Don’t know who to turn to
What should i do
I can't answer my questions I’m so confused
I use to be a track star but that won’t take me far
Got to do good in school get a good education
It’s so hard... my dad has been in and out and back again
I don't know what I'm trying to defend
Myself, my pride, my youth, my hide
keep'en everything bottled up inside
I don't know want to live, don't want to die I just want to break down and cry
This is so confusing, to other people it’s so amusing
They haven't been through the stuff I've been through
Haven’t seen the stuff I've seen
They’d be over and back again and then they’d see what I've been through
And want to know how i made it through
Let’s just say I found the light to make it out of the darkness
Found the strength to move on
And all of a sudden the weight of the world is all gone
But my dad he used to be my closest friend
But then he went back to the peon
Then I was the only one that i could depend
Until I found a new friend who already knew what I've been through
They’ve been in my shoes after word it turned out pretty good in the end.
And want to know how i made it through
Let’s just say I found the light to make it out of the darkness
Found the strength to move on
And all of a sudden the weight of the world is all gone
But my dad he used to be my closest friend
But then he went back to the peon
Then I was the only one that i could depend
Until I found a new friend who already knew what I've been through
They’ve been in my shoes after word it turned out pretty good in the end.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
