Who? Answer That.

Why shouldn't I jump?
Who would miss me?
Who would cry?
Who wants to keep me inside of their mind?
Who wants to love me,
but don't know how?
no one, nobody,
I know that now,
I write these words,
to rid myself of the pain,
for people destroy me,
for their own twisted gain,
I don't want fortune,
and I don't want fame,
I just want to be able to be myself again
