Disturbed By Life - Poem by Britni

I was once a believer in life, until the day I was left alone.
I was eighteen and in love, preparing a life of my own.
My lover once told me, 'You shouldn't resent life'.
My response was, 'I'd rather die by a knife'.
It's not that I was afraid to live, It's just that I wanted to die.
My mother never promised me sanity, she just said I 'd have to try.
I was warned the world would get ugly, but yet I already knew why.
The people stared and pushed me around, they thought they were in control,
they'll see who's crazy now.
I'll end what they've started, I strive to be in the ground, that's my real home.
No one can stop me now, I'll leave a note behind explaining how they left me alone..maybe then will they see the fear that was never shown.
