"Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it's faced."-James Baldwin

Like a tornado my life went astray,
Who could of known my life was at stake?
You only saw fake smiles and a molded face.
Who would have thought I was dying in place?
I looked for guidance,
But guidance did not look for me.
Who could have seen my search was about me?
I told you I hurt,
But no scars could be seen.
Who could of know those scars were inside of me?
Changes took place,
But none were in the right way.
Who could have seen my new route would lead me down a dark road?
I tried one more time,
To reach that far away light,
But the closer I got
The farther I drowned.
No one to turn to,
And too many to turn away,
I became trouble and with fire I played.
Who could have know that car had no brakes?
Who could have seen my life it would take?
Who could have is my question to you,
When I saw you watching all the way through.

I think many people see something that they know is bad but they don't do anything about it. Instead they just watch. So, I hope that after they read this they stop being in the sidelines.
