If Only You Knew

by a young man, age 17

If only you knew
The troubles I have seen
If only you knew
The love that lives within
If only you knew
The people I have sinned
If only you knew
The blood I have shed
If only you knew
The lives I have fled
If only you knew
What my family has said
If only you knew
The life I have led
If only you knew
I wish I was dead
