Epitaph

By: Jackie R. Mannen

My life is over
Hooray! Hooray!
No more hiding away like yesterday
I can now be free
And say how I really felt all along
I never cared about having friends
All they ever did was pretend
I never enjoyed sharing my thoughts
They were to stay buried inside at my cost
I never let them out, and no, I don't care
How dare you say I was never there
I was there for you when you fell apart
And I know without me there'd be no you
No one was there when my world was crashing down
My life fell apart, but you never knew
It's over now
I'm six-feet under
My tortured and tattered soul is finally free
I can now really be me
