Life's a Must


You've been through the roughest of the rough
You've been strong and also tough
To live through pain is the worst
The pain of anger and the thirst

The thirst of love and thirst of life
Can all come true with the knife
Cut your wrist and watch the blood
Emotion runs out, fall with a thud

Self harm works, short term only
In the future you sit there lonely
Life is hard it has no charms
I cant live life with constant alarms

Alarms of emotion with tears included
The feeling of life of which I'm concluded
The feeling of love drifts away
As I sit in pain, life's just this way

Ive tried everything just to stay
Ive hid the worst right to this day
But I have friends of which I trust
With them included life is a must
