Why Would I Cry! - Poem by Sharjeel Shahid

why would i cry,
i see this part of life so often, now im used to it
i just sit back & sigh,

i try to be honest, but my heart lies,
i thought im better off kicking asses but
now i realize that i was wanted more when i was sweet & shy

i believe life is a pie, if i dont jump & grab one
people jump & get all of it, you get nothing.

people would never accept in any way you are,
i need to understand myself more, more than my guitar,

The HOPE that ill find any one who understands
& comforts me is way too far.

im not in a healthy state of mind I could hop
in my car turn the loud music,
every word i hear, every thing i see is bizzar!
this banging in my head forces me to
turn my ride to the wide bar

i had a misconception that this would help indifferently,
i realize that im not a person,
im a personality!
i realize im not humane but i still
belong to HUMANITY!
people ask me how do i write this, i tell em
it doesnt require MIND, its mentality!

I wish I wasnt slaved,
i could get free, i pray to make things better,
God! you dont find me often on my Knees,
im always smiling, in all the snaps u see
my teeth, 'smile'!

but suddenly something happens that my world stops spinning, it simply goes freeze!
but i still wont dropp a tear because it aint on lease,
I beg! please!
lemme live my way...no1 is tellin u to take the highway
because i want u to stay
what if to all ur rules i cant obey!

so now you are gonna jail me,
tell u something, i have no1 to bail me,
there r bigger crimes in the world...BANG BANGed still gonna get hanged.

i didnt achieve any thing in this life and so is the case
with the 1 which is about to come,
i dont have any choices
no! not even to run!
my advice to life,
live every moment u get, take no ten-shun!
go have fun & socialize
because trust me without them
its done,

im standing here like this....because i lived, am living & will live alone...

huh friends! ! ! is you always hear me complaining about
Because i have none! ! ! !
