Just a random piece of writing...
I watch as their faces pass by
Watch them wave to you
And then just sit there
Knowing there is nothing I can do.

Now turn around and face me
With your head bowed in shame
As you finally realize that
My life is not a game.

It's so damn hard
To sit here and pretend
That you're truly sorry
That you'll try to make amends.

When every fight we have
Revolves around your own pain
And no matter what I do
I am always the one to blame.

But I can't give up yet
Can't become a failure
Can't fulfill this prophecy
Set in stone by my father.

I will be my own person
Even if it kills me
There is so much in this world
That I can be...
