I've been wondering why this year,
Has been worse than any other.
Finally now the answer is so clear,
Now everyone is running to take cover.
Everyone is trying to hide,
From the mass graves and constant commotion.
We are trying to fix this but fail every time,
Left with no guide on handling our emotions.
We're all trying to dodge,
All the bullets and the knives.
Feeling like our lives are being botched,
Wondering if this is all just a whole bunch of lies.
I don't know why this torture can never end,
I'm staying alive by the skin of my teeth and the thin strands of my hair.
I can't trust anyone at all, no one on this Earth is my friend,
Because it's reality more than it is a nightmare.
