Random Poem:


When you sit in your room
you wonder why things happen
You wonder why god put you here
If it was to learn or if it was to die
Your brain starts turning
and things come about
You question what to do
and whether its right
In the end you keep it inside
and hope it doesn't come out
You hope it doesn't show
and you hope it doesn't hurt
You fear that some one will find out
That it will get passed on and said
that you the kid who needs help
You fear that day will come
So you keep it inside
and hope it doesn't hurt
