A lot people have helped me
In many ways
Guiding me to the way
I don't know what is called "surviving"
The love and care that everyone has shown
So much throughout my life
Causing me to get on and lead the normal life
That I am who I am
And for that I'm grateful -- truly I am
I can't repay them or love them enough
I've been through a lot in my life
And came out the other side
Yes, please look now, for I've survived
The Real Deal
By Kirst Lou Crack (Kettering Northants, UK)
Why do I feel bad?
Then comes mad and sad
It makes me feel like everyday crime
Is like pay back time
But I feel scared, trapped
Do you think anyone cares?
I never feel good enough
To beat the desperate fight of defeat
Lose then cruise
Then trip then grip
Catches up though
Hurts then hides away
What more do I have to say or do?
To make these things come true
Freak out, cause my head to panic, shout
This causes me to then think its the real deal.
