My Walk

All my life I’ve walked alone
down thorny paths of broken stone.
No one to hear my silent screams.
No one to see my broken dreams.

I’ve always held my head up high
without a thought of days gone by.
My tears contained within a cage,
my soul poured out upon a page.

These words you read explain my life.
I’ve cut myself open with a knife.
I’ve bled for you to feel the pain.
I’ve bled for me to keep me sane.

So take these words into your heart.
Trust that I won’t fall apart.
I’ll stand up tall without a crack
because Ive beat those demons back.
