There Was A Time

There was a time when I was happy; oh I was never sad
There was a time when I was thankful for all the good things that I had
A time when happiness and joy were all that I knew
A time when I really did look up to you
A time when I looked in the mirror and loved what I would see
A time when I looked in the mirror and .me
I wish I could take back all the stuff I've done
I wish that I could just have a little fun
They say depression, they say freak
They called me suicidal, anorexic, and weak
I say 'NO!'
Why won't they leave me alone?
All I want is for them to look at me like I'm a human being
So I put on makeup, necklaces and rings
So they would stop talking about me
The whispers behind my back
The jokes that they would crack
Therapy sessions, social workers at my door
I guess the way I acted they thought I wanted more
Why won't they leave me alone?
No! Don't call me on the phone!
Don't ask me how I'm doing! You don't really care!
Will it faze you that I'm no longer there?
So goodbye world! This is my goodbye!
Now, it's my time to die!
