Anybody Home? - Poem by Desiree Whitamore
this place is so pathetic.
doesn't anybody get it?
is there anybody home?
these worlds, they keep colliding
and the explosion is just so blinding
why am i still alone?
remembering the glory,
of the life they had before me
i'm just a burden passing through.
so i turn over to the dark side
be the hell they see in my eyes
how do i heal this bruise?
and forever i'll be wounded
just keep your humor on and tuned in
but i doubt anything will change.
'cause my feet, they keep escaping
from the path i keep on taking
why do i wanna stay the same?
the grades i make are way worse,
and i have no will to do work
'cause i'm going nowhere fast.
my parents don't believe me
when i say today i will be
cleaning up my act.
i've never righted whats wrong
i've never wanted to belong
i really don't like it here
but i'm sure that you know
i have no where else to go
so i'll keep shedding these tears.
