It Was My Birthday Yesterday


It was my birthday yesterday
The worst day of my life
My 30th birthday
No party
No presents
No nothing
Yeah, I loved every minute of it

It was my birthday yesterday
A day that will for me live on forever
In bitter memory
A day where
I was ignored by friends
Barely even spoken to by family
I pray I don't live to celebrate another
Or do I?
I just don't know anymore

It was my birthday yesterday
Never have I felt so invisable
Never have I felt so unwanted and unloved
As if I were nothing more then dirt
As if it were just another ordinary day
Not my special day
Made and still makes me wish that I were dead....sometimes

Maybe then
Next time around
On the anniversary
They would notice me
They would leave behind presents and a cake on my grave
Yeah right
I bet they would forget

Just like they all did this year!

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
