If They Only Knew by writerforever

Here I sit all alone

Thinking about what I should have known

What I should have known all along

They say I'm good

They say I'm an inspiration

But if they only knew

If they only knew the pain in my heart

If they only knew the fear

The fear of messing up

Broken dreams, broken promises, a broken heart

That is the story of my life and my life has only begun

They always expect me to be perfect

They always expect me to make the right choices

And if I do something wrong, or bad

If I do something out of the ordinary

I am punished for messing up

If they only knew

If they only knew the pain in my heart

If they only knew the struggles

If they only knew the struggles that I have to fight

I am only human

I am going to make mistakes

People always want my advice

People always want help from me

But the truth is I need help

Depression hovers over me

Darkness and fear surround me

I am all alone in this struggle

This struggle for survival in a world

In a world where you must be perfect

In a world where you cannot be yourself

In a world where you are despised if you mess up

How am I to survive?

How am I to survive when my own family is against me?

Against me for making a wrong choice

They say "You must be punished for your actions"

But they forget I am only human

They forget that I am a normal person

They are always looking for a chance

A chance to crush everything that I have worked for

Everything that I have dreamed of

What am I to do?

Why are they so shocked that I made a mistake?

If they only knew. . .
