There's no god. There's no religion. There's only life, what you do with YOUR life, who YOU let affect YOUR life. Bad things happen to everyone, you just have to learn to deal with them.

You tell me one thing
I obey.
Then you change your mind
And I get in trouble.
I obey you again
Just to get yelled at.
You tell me don't argue
And I never did.
You tell me to say what's bothering me
But when I try
You tell me not to say anything
Or to not talk back.
You tell me that I can go out.
I try to go out
And I get yelled at.
You say I can't go out
Because I can't be trusted.
How am I supposed to gain trust
If I don't get a chance to earn it back?
You tell me to be a kid.
How am I supposed to be a kid
If I can't go out?
You tell me to learn how to respect others.
How about you learn how to make up your mind?
I can't reach your standards
Because you standards keep changing.

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
