Only Me

As I walk, I vow to not turn back
To stand on my own two feet
The way I did before
When there was only me.

Sight is held at face value
They don't see me
Only the face I put on today
Not the inner sea.

The things that hide between the lines
A child with no mom
Abused and beat again
Running away inside of me.

Her father who hurt her so
And the one who watched her leave
Can't smile anymore
Feeling like I let her down.

They can't see this
When I hide my tears
Pretend everything is good
So I don't blame them.

So as I walk I vow to not turn back
To stand on my own two feet.
The way I did before
When there was only me.
