At War with Life

I am from war, war with myself

War with people I love

War with those around me

War from where I stand today

Where do I stand?

I stand in a wet puddle with fear in emotions

Grew up poor from shelter to shelter, till Mama got enough money

Through abuse and running away made me the strong person today

I still struggle at the age of fifteen being in and out of the system

Been through some ^&*( that’s hard to explain

Time after time I finally know what I want in life, that’s to not %^&* up and be better than what I was raised and taught in life.

But where I stand . . .

It’s gonna take time to figure it out and get things right.

So if you ask me where I stand I’ma tell you I am at war with life.
