better safe than sorry

can any one hear my screams?
can any one feel my pain?
do they know how to find me?
can they see me for me and not the person that i have become?

i can not be found! say the thoughts in my head.
you want to be found says my gut
but i listen to my heart
"they'll kill you once they find out who you are"
"but what if they don't?" i say

"better safe than sorry"
"yes i should be safe"
listen to your heart it will help in many situations.

I actually really liked this poem. Something about it seems a little rocky around the edges. Like i feel like it needs a beet of some sort... but the message comes across strong and clear. Nice work.
