I tried but no help was coming my way
I cried and screamed out
nothing was ever good for me
Sometimes I would hear people calling my name
but it’s my inner voice
I would hurry up out of bed to see the sun
but it’s just light of the day, another dark part of my life
It was the same story all over again
I kept lying to myself
My heart lies on my daily lies

When I started to tell myself I mattered
That’s when all things changes
Darkness has been a tale to me
Poverty was an untold saga in my life
I guess you want to know what caused it to change
I’m scared to say but I can mention one name
