Youth (no one understands)

By eternal despair

Rebelous child with poetic tears
No longer sober, no more pain
A young girl digging her own grave
With high hopes and dreams of going far
As she kisses the sky, she falls, death blooms

No one understands the life of youth
Critizism, hate, violence, judgement
Young and lost from lonelyness
Everybody cries...
Wanting to escape, confused as hell
No one there to guide them
Young minds trying to be freed
Everybody cries...

In the depths of sorrowful shadows
A child grew up to fall down
Joining troubled youth ans corrupted lives
He's free from judgement

Kid's with no where to go
fighting the law, no more standing in line
Screaming 'fuck the system'
crying for freedom, and rebeling against parents

No one understands the life of youth
Critizism, hate, violence, judgement
Young and lost from lonelyness
Everybody cries...
Wanting to escape, confused as hell
No one there to guide them
Young minds trying to be freed
Everybody cries...

Misunderstood with suicidal tendancies
She's pissed off at the world
A young poet lost in her generation
Rock and roll, sex and drugs
Living the high life, yet feeling so low
Jugded for being herself
Guilty... the crime is life
Her blood flows to write.

No one understands the life of youth
Critizism, hate, violence, judgement
Young and lost from lonelyness
Everybody cries...
Wanting to escape, confused as hell
No one there to guide them
Young minds trying to be freed
Everybody cries...
So much hatred and judgement
Everybody cries...

Living under pressure
A teenage boy sitting in the dark
Crying for freedom
He's all alone and ignored
His broken heart and razor blade accompany him
No one even noticed he was gone...

    I'm glad i found this again, I remember reading this long ago and i still love it just as much. "Living the high life, feeling so low" So many people despair in the unrealized tragedy of thier choices
