My Ways

by a young woman, age 17

Every day’s a new day
Bringing joy, bringing sadness
But my day is a roller coaster
It brings me up, it brings me down
Every second is a new feeling
I am a monster, but a fairy, too
My anger, I believe,
Is the worst thing that walked the Earth
I’ve hurt the people I love and care for
Oh, all the bad things I’ve done
That I wish I hadn’t
I care so much, but rage can take over
I feel anything I do
Will never repay for my bad deeds
