No matter what I say or do
It always comes out wrong
Just like a broken record
Over and over the same old song.
Nothing ever turns out right
However hard I may try
It’s one thing and then another
I want to just sit down and cry.
I thought I would be happy
With my family around
But something negative always happens
And keeps my spirits low to the ground.
No matter how much time I spend
Trying to make things right
Someone always knocks it down
And starts a big, huge fight.
Maybe I was wrong
For moving all this way
But now I can’t afford to leave
So I guess this is where I’ll stay.
I’m going to make some changes though
And start keeping everything inside
No one else will know my thoughts
Only in me--will they reside.
