The close people are the ones who cause the most pain
Stabbed in the back like Caesar, “Et tù brute”
It's hard to be pierced by someone who is far away
So I keep everyone at a distance, and cruise on my own, a destructive lane
My story is insufficient because of every torn page
I use to love hanging with my fellow cats
They were my friends
Now I feel like I'm in a lion’s den
Cause I heard them talking behind my back again
They're really vicious but started off harmless, a lion’s roar, that at first was just a cat's hiss, friendship, I'll never believe in it
I'm bruised, I'm hurt, I'm broken.
I'm sitting at this dangerous occasion that you’re hosting
You pretend your smooth on the surface ,but I see the cracks in your skin, no lotion
The water looks fine but I jumped in and realized there's nothing but salt in this ocean,
I say I can make it on my own, don't think I'm boasting,
Really I'm bruised, I'm hurt , I'm broken
I'm a victim of rape, can I move on from that? Well no,
I've been violated, is that joke?
Do you really think I can just accept any man who tries to approach?
He looks like a nice man….so
These days a pedophilia is dressed in the wardrobe of a pope
I was child when it happened so inside I still cry and mope
I'm full of issues so there's no room for hope,
I'm bruised, I'm hurt, I'm broken
My life is full of nothing but hatred
They say there's a God but I'm only seeing the works of Satan
The question is life or death, it seems so basic
Is suicide even worth debating?
Feeling more out of place than a room with 50 blacks and I'm the one Caucasian
I'm not sure about much but one thing is certain,
I'm bruised I'm hurt I'm broken
Expect me to stay cool when inside I’m past 100 degrees,
Like a foreigner, why talk if no one will understand me?
Everyone is pointing their index fingers in my direction, blaming me for my wrong deeds
And my middle finger goes to the creator G.O.D
Giving me a life full of misery
Having no father and losing my mother, a smile will never be seen, how can I be happy?
Clearly this vicinity wasn't built for me, your name is Earth but Hell is what you appear to be
I didn't foul anyone but I feel I'm taking the penalty
And now I don't hold an ounce of sympathy
I'm bruised I'm hurt I'm broken
I jumped into a relationship and gave it my all
But quickly and surely my summer turned into fall
Sacrificing myself for my loved one like a scene from Saw
This thing ended so early I wish it had never start,
I quote Alicia keys, have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart?
Feeling incomplete like Tony without the Stark, a puppy without the bark
I thought this relationship was priceless but it ended up counterfeit
I felt more for you than you felt for me, the aching finally hit
Now I wish I could erase what happened and rewrite the script
Feeling hopeless like the rabbit, will I ever get the Trix?
I'm bruised, I’m hurt, I’m broken
Like Jenga, they pull the wrong piece and everything falls apart, like dang, maybe I'm not as strong as I thought
My opponent is tears; they're the only things I've fought
But I can never hold back every salty tear drop
They say time heals all so I hope to find the cure in the clock, I forget the issue is there until someone hits me in that painful sensitive spot
And now I'm angry staring at my watch
Cause time has gone by but the pain has not
These are examples of people that are hurting but may never admit
How can we turn our back on those who are afflicted when we hold the cure for the sickness?
Don't give up on the broken, get some incentive, make the decision, offer a helping hand even if they choose to be distant
They might smack your hand away but don't allow that to cause friction, the last thing we need in this world is division, never giving up on those around us should be our mission
So continue to pray furthermore
No matter how many times they walk away don't close the door
Unlike us, the cry of those in pain, God can never ignore
I'm sorry for those who are hurt and scorn
For those who wish they were never born
This world can be ugly but there's always something that will be beautiful and that's the face of our lord
I know you've been beaten and mistreated
But don't you ever forget there's is no one who will love you more
How much bruises, hurt and brokenness will you sit alone and endure?
I know the scars are your life's legs have taken form
But run to him, he is the only way you can be protected, built up and restored.
