    Where can I go?
    Hide from myself
    So nobody knows
    The pain I've went through
    Some nights not knowing what I was going to do
    Not knowing who I was anymore
    Not knowing this person was on the outside of me
    That everyone sees as humoursly funny and sweet
    Yet inside tortured
    Loosing my sanity
    Not revealing my identity
    Not maintaining my stability
    Tears run down her cheek
    No evidence
    Of my heart gone weak
    Still tearing and wearing me down
    Till I am no more
    Still fighting this intimidation
    This sad and rude reality
    Where I just don't fit in
    I just don't mold into a category
    I don't fit with the status quo
    Yet I still seem to be normal because of my beauty
    What cruelty
    To think you can use me as your toy
    And think to yourself what a joy
    YOu don't even know who the hell I am!
    You make me so angry and so mad!
    Why was I even born into this land?
    I feel like a stranger
    And that my beliefs are way out there
    Somewhere far where nobody can understand!!
    It's all I had
    What I've desired
    Has made me glad
    I wish I never had
    To know you
    It's so hard to say good bye
    Cause I'm leaving a part of me behind
    Routinely
    I pretend to die
    Still to remember fervently
    The look in your eyes
    When I am telling no lies

    **** this is deep
    this is a classic
    i felt this
    you have to trust yourself
    and don't expect your happiness from other people
    you have to make you happy

    this piece is one of the phattest you've ever written

    feelin your pain
