Punching Toy

I’m used to the tears
The pain, the confusion
I’m used to hearing the sobs
Painting a picture, a fake happy illusion

I smile, I play
I laugh and I sing
Inside I’m screaming
But no one knows a thing

No one hears the pain in me
No one look inside
No one understands my guilt
No one holds me when I cry

I’ve often heard, I’m often told
That I’m mature beyond my age
But I’ve lost my childhood too early
I’d rather be the same range

Now day’s it’s natural for me to cry
I feel I deserve every ounce
Misery comes and whenever I’m happy
He comes and does he pounce

I’m a helpless field of guilt
Feel no love and joy
I must come out of this pan soon
I’m still just a punching toy
