There's A Hole In The World.

I’ve seen a lot of what the world can do.

The beauty the cruelty and everything in between
Nothing is truly what it seems
Family and friends are nothing but mere strangers
Who put on a smile and say they accept you
When what they really want to do
Is tear your heart in two
I never had a father
I’ll never know what that’s like
So I will write and fight until everyone hears my voice
They won’t have a choice
I speak for those who can’t speak for themselves
Much like a younger me
Oh how everyone was too blind to see
How sick I could be
The torture I endured
The pain that reoccurred
They raped me from the inside out
They’ll never know how it felt
I used to be happy
I fear I will never know that feeling again
They shattered my soul
All I needed was control
Starvation was my need
Food was the enemy
I didn’t deserve to eat
This was my retreat
This was my white flag
I hated myself more and more
I was on my way out that door to a place where the sun doesn’t shine
Where no one judged
And being different wasn’t a crime
I was so beautiful young and blissful
Being happy is a lie
It’s my disguise that I put on everyday
No one wipes my tears away
