You donít understand
What itís like to be mentally tortured every day
By your own family
(Or do you?)

You donít understand
What itís like to be called fat and ugly
By your own grandmother
(Will it ever stop?)

You donít understand
What itís like to be forgotten
By your own father
(Or do you?)

You donít understand
How it feels to be talked about
Lied about, by your own grandmother
(Will it ever stop?)

You donít understand
What it feels like to be paranoid
Not feeling safe anywhere
(Or do you?)

You donít understand
This pain I feel when
She is around
(Will it ever stop?)

You donít understand
How bad it feels to be given up
By a family member
(Or do you?)

You donít understand
What itís like to feel this pain
Every single day
(Will it ever stop?)

You donít understand
What it feels like to hate
Your own blood
(Or do you?)

You donít understand
And you never will
So stop trying
(Will it ever stop?)

You donít understand
What itís like
Being me
(Or do you?)

So stop telling me
Everything is going to be alright
You donít understand
That I know different
(Will it ever stop?)

Sadness, like happiness, has its own majestic beauty and must be embraced as a valid emotion, not pushed down as an abnormality.
