Life Through My Eyes

The pressure's killing me; I'm dying

I'm doing my best; I'm trying

Once upon a time I was flying

Now I'm just sitting in my room crying

My parents are on me spying

When to my friends I be replying

My friends think I be lying

While I sit there sipping tea sighing

The rules I keep defying

I'm annoyed by my relatives prying

I want love that's underlying

But his calls I keep declining

My priorities I be deciding

My mistakes I keep rectifying

Teachers keep work assigning

This isn't at all surprising

The thoughts in my mind keep striking

I keep on quickly writing

In this fake world I keep smiling

To stop myself from resigning
