Why does this all matter?

I have tried to hard

I can't fit in

Its not who im supposed to be

Why do I care so much?

What all the others think

I shouldn't be bothered

But all those rumours make me think

Why does it matter what they say?

They all have the power to spread the rumours

They don't care that they are destroying me

People I counted as a friend

Turn around and change again

Why do I cheat myself?

Out of happiness out of life

What they say shouldn't make a difference

I have said I am not bothered

They feed on disappointment

But how come I'm always their food?
