I say mean things,

And keep myself locked away.

I pretend like I'm too good for them,

Above their silly games.

I laugh along,

But hope they see,

The contempt within my eyes.

I say I hate this place,

And these people,

And I just can't wait to be free.

I've hurt those I've ever called 'friend',

And hurt those I never even knew.

I know I'm horrible,

A monster in every right,

But don't try to change me,

I'm safer this way.
