The Way Things Work

Poem By Jorie Graham

I'm feeling a little blue
A little sick and tired of my life
I just wish I didn't have to be here

I feel all alone in this crazy messed up world
And all I want to do is curl up into a ball and
Cry myself to sleep with the music banging in my ears

Wishing that something great would come my way
And I could grab onto it for a little while
Cause I feel lost, alone and confused

I don't know what to do
I don't know anything anymore
All I want to do is hide

Hiding away from my fears
I look at my scars to see they are real
And wishing I had more

Cause thats all I know
And I don't see how
I've gone this far without harming myself
