On the outside I am quiet
shy, timid, composed
You think I'm happy go lucky
your wrong in what you suppose
I don't have it all together
though some may think I do
Does anyone know
or understand
the things I'm going through?

Can't take it anymore I want to hide
does anyone hear me scream inside
the anger burns
like fire in my bones
must keep it hidden
no one can know

Wish i could numb myself
learn not to feel
Escape into a world that is not real
Wheres a person who will never leave?
who wants to accept me for me

Can't take it no more I want to hide
Does anyone hear me scream inside?
The anger burns
like fire in my bones: must keep it hidden
no one can know

I'm a puppet to all of you
I can't perform like you want me to
You expect me to act happy
be pretty
and smart
when my whole danm world is falling apart

Can't take it anymore i want to hide
does anyone hear me scream inside?
the anger burns
inside my bones
I keep it hidden
no one can know

My greatest fear
is that I'll end up alone
no one to care for
no one to hold
thats why I'm angry
it's not cause I'm mean
its cause i need someone to cherish me

A word to you who are lucky enough
to have some someone to come home to at night
tell them how much you love them
hug them and hold them tight
For those of you who have that in your life
someone to call your valentine
May you know that you are blessed
and pray for those who have much less

Can't take it any more
I want to hide
does anyone hear me scream inside?
The anger burns
inside my bones
must keep it hidden
No one can know.

Yes, I hear you, Sister.

Let not your heart be troubled, though...God will provide just who you need in who needs YOU.


This was a beautifully poignant piece...so raw and open.



Exquisite emotions here.


And...WELCOME TO DESTEE! :hey:
