What they say

I understand I'm not enough
I'm sorry to tell you but I am a little rough
You are killing me day by day
Not your actions but the words you say
I try my best but it's never enough
Not emotional because I was raised tough
Hurt by the little things you dont say
Need to understand why you cant stay
I'm sorry things have been so difficult
Always taking out on you never meant to revolt
Sitting alone in my room crying about the way
Things happen for a reason, least that's what they say
