They tell you to be grateful, I've tried
See everyone content, I cried
This life I love to live, I lied
Jealousy and envy, suffering and pain, I replied

Do you know how it feels to have your soul stolen and mutilated?
I could take the time to explain, but it's complicated
All the advice I can't even fade it
Filled with discontent and it's perpetuated

Drowning my intestines in poisonous lava
Bring it on, I want all that drama
Man after man, friend after friend, I need to end this saga
That bitch rearing her head once again in the end, say hello to karma

You give what you get that's what the old folks say
But I've given my whole being when will it be my day
Used and abused, taken advantage of, I say
This seems to be the only way

It's time to make a change
Scenery, environment, all that's strange

Make way for positivity
But will it make room for me?

What I like about this poem is that it makes me want to know more. It makes me want to listen. Not really sure if that makes sense... but you did a great job. Please continue sharing!

Great poem. I love the flow and you are right. When happiness becomes scarce it is time for a change.
