I understand, I swear I do,

As tears run down my cheeks.

I understand, I swear I do,

why cheerleaders get cancer.

I understand, I swear I do,

why people can hurt people.

I understand that those who hurt,

will have happiness in the end.

My mind understands the plan,

that it will all be okay.

But my heart doesn’t understand,

it only sees the hurt. Only feels the pain.

My mind can see them after,

after they’ve moved on.

But my heart can only see now,

the good people in bad circumstances.

I don’t mean to doubt, I swear I don’t,

but the word unfair is hard to justify.

I’m trying, I swear I am,

to just have faith in an unfair world.
