You Can Try

You can stitch my skin

But not my heart

You can mend my wounds

But not my mind

You can heal the surface

But not deep down

I am broken

You can ignore cuts

But i feel the pain

You can smile easy

But it takes effort

You can cover it up

But i still know it’s there

I am a failure

You can say it’s alright

But is see through your lies

You can shut me up

But my thoughts get louder

You can say nothing

But i hear what’s in your silence

I am a disappointment

You can send me away

But they’ll send me back

You can say therapy will help

But i’ve had five so far

You can say it’s gone

But scars are forever

I am unwanted

You can say it’s a phase

But five years gone by

I can’t even die right
