All I did was try my best

To not end up like all the rest.

My parents never gave me the proper tools,

To be a lady and avoid the fools.

I was lost and looking for a place.

When things shifted and you were in my face.

I don’t know why you made a big scare.

You inhaled fluids instead of air.

What happened next when the devil leaned in,

Is how this entire thing takes an evil spin.

I knew in my heart from that very day,

Our lives were headed in a different way.

She was the first one that ever showed me love

That’s why she’s cold and thinks she’s above,

I’m the reason she has no remorse

Life can’t become History without running its course.

This feeling was unlike anything one can explain

A ten second phone call would have ended my pain.
