Courage comes in all sizes, but fits only a few.
What is wise is not always right and what is right is not always wise.
Knowing what is wrong and right is not choosing which to fight.
-All of these are by me


You know not the pain I feel
The turmoil, a storm in my soul
The evil tearing through my heart
It’s been here from the start

And now when life is all gone
The happiness can’t be found
Nothing seems to be alright
Nothing seems worth the fight

But when I tell a single soul
It’s the pain that they don’t know
All I hear is that’s too bad, I’m sorry
I don’t want their apology

What I really want to hear
Is that you’ll always be here
That you’ll hold me in your arms
And hide me away from all harm

Tell me it will be okay
That my pain will somehow fade
Or that I’m strong enough
That this pain makes me tough

Tell me words of truth and love
Tell me all these things above
Then take me from this place
Remove me from my disgrace

Replace the hate I’ve known
The pain I suffered all alone
Wipe away my hurt filled tears
The agony of all these years

Help me get my second try
Before life and love go on by
Help me be who I’m meant to be
PLEASE TRY TO SET ME FREE
