Nightmare

If my life was a dream

It would be a forgotten nightmare

Where you toss and turn

But you never wake up

Covered in sweat and out of breath

If my life was a movie

It would be one of those southern movies

Where the mothers are always crying

About their children

If my life was a news segment

It would be about a thirteen year old runaway

Found dead

If my life was a book

It would be the urban fiction version

Of the Bible

If my life was a poem

It would sound similar to this

If my life was over

Who would really care?
