I see people laughing and smiling everyday with so much cheer
So easy for them to continue life without judgement and fear.
I am envious of their emotion they show
for mine remain hidden so much no one will know.
I am the shell of a person of whom many seek
but if they knew who I really was, they would surely weep.
For I am filled with darkness beyond relief
so much that one would only be consumed with grief.
Day by day, I walk trying to forget
the past I knew so I can continue with no regrets.
However, try as I might, the past cannot change,
for I will sooner or later have to break out of my cage.
My past cannot hold me,
I will fight until Im free
free of who was and will only be me.
