The Inner Conflict of My Mind

I am lost
I see the backstabbing
I read what’s in between the lines
I taste the bitter flavor of hate
I feel like I’m overdue
I think I’m losing my mind.
I know it’s true
I am Alone

I’ve learned lessons that should be learned
I’ve dreamed dreams that shouldn’t be dreamed
I’m afraid they’ll come true
I reach out but there’s nothing to hold on to
I say I’m sorry when I shouldn’t be
I try to believe
I am strong

I wonder why
I keep secrets
I hide all the time.
I remember everything.
I am confused

I want to survive
I won’t ever hurt or lie
I will strive
I can fight back
I am a fighter

I pretend I’m okay
I sing to my heart’s content
I act like my life’s a stage
They call me Puppet
I am an actress

I hear the lies
I whisper “why?”
I shout nothing.
I am silent

I like how he’s here for me
I love him but I don’t know how to tell him

I declare for all of the world to hear
I am still here.

I am Lost
