Life Can Be Hard

©

Published: February 2006



Why didn't they tell me how mean the world can be
Why didn't they tell me how it's suppose to work
If only I would have been thinking I wouldn't be grown?
If only I would have been thinking I would have known?
Life's not easy any way you go.
It's even harder if you have a young one of your own.
I'm apologizing for all my mistakes.
But not for creating a life to be grown.
My little girl life ended early for me.
Now I'm out here in society proving how hard grown-up life can be.
Every time he's in my arms life makes sense.
I've been stared at and looked down upon.
It doesn't bother me I just keep going on.
Struggling to bring Love and Life to my baby.
All I'm trying to do is make sense out of all this.
If only I would have been thinking I wouldn't be grown.
If only I would have been thinking I would have known.
All I'm asking is,
Why didn't they tell me how mean the world can be?
Why didn't they tell me how it's suppose to work?
