To live is to suffer
it just keeps getting tougher and tougher
first I write this rhyme
to help you understand it only takes time
I donít know, but maybe from reading
this it will help you grow
ever since I was 8 my life has been full of hate
you can call it hell on earth
whoís next and going to be first
I remember being a little boy
not knowing the future that laid before me
not knowing it would distort me
I seems like these days be rainy days
I can never do something right, that was meant to be
canít you see I donít know what is meant to be
half my soul has been missing for quite sometime
please tell me god will it ever be mine
or does it just take quality time
you see Iím confused, sometimes miss used
I never know which way to choose
I donít want to hurt anybody along the way
yes itís true I think of her sweetness each and everyday
Just remember live to love or why live at all
I think thatís what has made me stand so tall
so when you see me donít just prejudge me
get to know me you might love me
maybe learn to trust me
you see girl I be real
so much that I can make you feel
I know you ainít know the deal
Iv been through the darkest days of hell
I remember when I was little, show and tell
telling everybody what happened to my Dad
girl why you looking at me so sad
You know I ainít bad
I have seen the internal pit of hell
hmmmm does that ring a bell
yeah from 1993-1999
I have been suffering inside
sometimes I just wish I could die
but no I say to myself thatís the cowards way out
and I ainít about to take that route
cause that ainít what Dís about.

Dean, I really like how you express yourself in all you write, it's a good way to let it out, and I can almost feel your pain, you explain it so well! You keep writing, cause it's a good release when you're hurting on the inside! I think writing has kept me from going crazy helps to keep my thinking straight when times are tough! I applaude you for sharing this. Be strong.
