By JOHNNY LIU
Not because I am tired
But because I want to escape,
To escape the demons I see around me
To escape the people that let them torment me.
Because nobody cares
Not one single person.
The world is hell.
And the brutes in the halls reign as kings.
I am tired of fighting,
Fighting the ocean that keeps pulling me under.
I am tired of getting up
Only to have another wave push me down.
to wake up from my daily nightmare.
And then I realized:
I can stay awake.
Now, I am awake, and forever asleep.
