We hope and wish dreams come true
But in the end they never do.
We pray they stay
But eventually we all walk away.
People don't realize the pain and agony
They just pretend to walk beside me
When I reach out my hand
On my face is where I land.
The cuts they burn
But people never really learn
It helps with relief
Some aren't as deep as they seem
Please don't act like you care
Because that's when I get really scared
I don't want to be this way
Some how it just seems to stay
A sense of comfort in my head
You're not the reason my blood is red
Listen to what I'm saying
One day you might be laying
In my shoes you'll one day walk
But until then please don't talk
My scars and cuts I chose to show
Not for attention but for you to know
What I go through is very real
All these emotions I tend to feel
Not a distant memory but a line
It's not a weakness but, a sign.
