I Never Knew

I didn't know my life would be so damn hard

Packed with so many obstacles and tribulations

Stress and hard decision blocking the road ahead

Then the probability of me going to jail hanging over my head

A jail cell for every seat in my school, foretelling my life for me

Death before I can make something of myself

Cant leave the place I grew up alive, so what now?

Should I burry myself in a hole and give up on life?

Or should I try ten times harder, even though my past foretells my future?

I never knew being me would be so hard

I never knew trying to stand out was impossible

I never knew this world did not want me to grow
