Trying To Change - Poem by Brittani Martin

their comes a time in everyones life when they just kind of give up
when everything you have ever done backfires it gets to tough
when you have lived a certain way for so long its hard to change
because trying to live a different life and be someone else is to strange
and even when you want to do good for yourself it seems to late
you have already screwed up so much you yourself caused all the hate
and because of all the promises you have broken
and all the pretty lies you have spoken
nobody believes you're actually trying to do better
they just believe you will never really get your shit together
your friends want to be right their partying and getting fucked up with you
but when you need help it seems like none of them are their to talk to
and even though it feels so good when your high and numb
you make your own choices in life and have to live with the outcome
and i want to change so bad it hurts me deep down inside
i look at my younger siblings I'm supposed to be their leader their guide
how am i supposed to make them do good and keep them in line
when I'm off getting messed up and only come home from time to time
and you start to realize your not only hurting yourself while your out having fun getting high
when you come home and see the worried look in your moms eyes while she starts to cry
hurting the one person who has stuck by you through it all
and was always their to catch you when you began to fall
about that time is when you realize you want to be done
after that point is when you realize it is no longer fun
