It's just me


i tried to die.

my heart was broken.

my life's story, a simple statistic.

she left me.

she used me.

she left me alone.

with him.

whom i loved.

though he hated me.

that was just a piece of the pain to come.

i tried to die.

because i was not beutiful.

because i was lied to.

because i am black.

because i was alone.

because i was me.

because i am me.

i tried to die.

i blamed her for abandonment.

the drugs

the misery.

my unknown history.

i hated her.

i tried to die

because She was my mother.

i tried to die

becase i was adopted.

i tried to die

becase i was misinformed.


i try to live

i have strength

for the others like me
