You are NEVER alone in your troubles - there is someone who is always willing to lend a hand or a shoulder to you.
-L. Kimpton

I wonder if you’ll ever see
The real me behind the mask.
I want to tell you what happens inside....
But I can’t....
If I were to let the real me show....
You wouldn’t like what you saw.
A cowardly animal
Trapped inside this wounded body.
When provoked I come alive,
Ready to attack.... defend.... kill....
Until that time I am sedated.
I want to let this side of me show,
But I might hurt those around me.
If a hunter were to chance upon me,
I’d beg for him to shoot me;
End this double life I live.

The author's comments:
I feel sometimes that there is a wild animal just trapped inside my body, trying to get out. I can't let it out for fear of destroying those near to me.
