Hide Away

I will not be ashamed
Amongst all of this dismay
I will stay strong and stand tall
Even through I may fall
I have already been through it all

Hiding away, just to keep others at bay
Please don’t say the poisons words
I take the words to my heart and they will live with me in the dark
I have never felt so far apart
I can not even chart the pain within my chest
The dart has punctured all of the life out of my body

Is there somebody who can watch over me
To set me free from reality
From a minute
A second
Until I am beckoned and I have learnt my lesson
I don’t dare question your transgression
