    Can u imagin a life without friends?It will be empty and nonsence.Thatz why i'm tryin' to catch what i feel for the one that are mine...

    I wanna say thank ya LONELINESS
    Cuz as a mixed race boy
    The black community don't recognize me
    And the white one reject me
    Girls are just lookin' at my body
    Without takin' da time of knowin' the real me
    My cousin Abigaïl is with us since 3 years
    N mum forget about me
    She doesn't wanna hear my deep pbs anymore
    "Go away son,plz n close da door"
    She doesn't have time to share with me
    Cuz all da free time shez now with Abi
    I wanna say thank ya PAIN
    Cuz mum n daddy r no more together
    Daddy doesn't have time for me
    The same thing he says
    "What do u want me to do i'm far away"
    All da time i'm callin'
    Never i feel he luv me
    Itz just like i've sin
    I wanna say thank ya LOSS
    Cuz everytime that i do smtg
    Itz not enough for anyone
    I do my best,i make efforts
    But no one sees that
    I wanna thank all dat buddies,
    They have opened my eyes to da real life
    No more tryin' to kill myself
    Bein' strenghten for a lifetime
    Cuz as sure as da sun shows life
    NO ONE is better than me

    Loneliness, being unaccepted, constantly, can make you feel like you are already dead. But isn't it wonderful when we can become our own best friend, and realize that we are just as good as the next? Emotively written...I hear you.
