Wow, I know how you feel. Life is hard for me too. Every day I get in trouble. Now I can't even trust my family. I also have Paranoia,Depression,and I'm suicidal.

Enough Please Let Me Be

You are my structure, my DNA
The ones that made me
Who I am today
So why can't you hear me?
Are my silent cries not loud enough?
Is the blood between us not thick enough?
I stay locked in my room
Away from it all
The school, the grades
The friends, the lovers.
Why can't you hear me,
When I don't talk through it all?
Are the "I don't know's" not clear enough?
Is the pain in my eyes not bright enough?
I've given up,
This is almost the end
Everyday I dread
Knowing you won't understand.
Well this is my plea
Maybe now you can see
I am your daughter,
Hurting as can be.
Please Mom and Dad,
Take a look around at what has become.
Please Mom and Dad,
Let me be me.
