Growing up

Growing up I had it hard
Harder then most of my friends
I lived in misery that had no end
Never had a true friend
One who would really lend a hand
Not one who could truly understand
Parents who didn't care
One who was never really there
Left me all on my own
Little girl inside a broken home
Cried myself to sleep
Wished I was dead
I wanted out
wanted to get away
Had no where to go
No one to turn to
All I need was a friend
someone who could understand
All the pain I was going through
Help me get past the things
I had trouble to
But no one was there
to help me on my feet
to wipe my tears
when I would weep
no one there to ease the pain
no one to help me
when I needed it the most
so I walk around like a living ghost
