Reaching into myself

Trying to find the real me

Hiding underneath the shroud that I have created

To protect myself

To prevent myself

From losing control of my own emotions


Lost deep inside

Those feelings I used to know

Suppressed mentally more and more over time

So I don't embarrass myself

So I don't hurt others

Expressing my twisted thoughts


One day I will

Release those feelings inside

Letting them explode like a supernova

Maybe hurting others

Maybe hurting myself

But at least I will finally be free
