I Try - Poem by Keith Young

Why do I try?
I don’t like my life
Lost in life
Lost in love
Lonely
Lost
No hope of being free
I don’t belong here
Why am I here
Felling like I am not loved
Felling so lost and lonely
I am lost and lonely
Please don’t leave me to be
I don’t want to be alone
Alone in this world
Filled with no love
Filled with no care
Filled with no sprit
Filling like u don’t want me
Happy to be without u if u want
Happy to not need
Happy that I have no friends
I try
Try too much
Try with all my life
It hurts inside
