Don't change me, I'm me


I sat here, about to do what I normally do

Right about my life

My ever so changing, sad excuse for a life

But... It's a life, easy or through strife


So I let someone open my eyes

So I could see the world

Just a little better

It was what it was


Most people find joy

In things that won't matter tomorrow

But they'll do what it takes

To see them and others happy


Such a fragile thing....

Laughter, happiness

Joy, kindness

So easily earned


But my room still looks like a prison

And my bed looks like stone

This paper looks like paper

And my family still doesn't care


So don't change me

Make me understand

Not mold me to Society's needs

I'm not a photocopy


I'm me

I'm better than that

I make my own happiness

Through myself


Trust broken and broken

So I'll just close my eyes again

And sit on my bed of stone


I guess I did do what I was going to do anyway

Express me

Not look for pity, I'm stronger than that, but

Write what I feel, everything comes from the same place... The main core of emotions
