For So Long

For so long, I have dealt with this ache
No woman could possibly relate.
My fate was too soon erased,
And my destiny I had to face.
For so long, I have worn this fake smile-
Hidden tears fill the Nile.
Inside I cringe,
As outside, I pretend;
I defend my pride,
So no hand can lend.
For so long, I have been on my very own.
Strong emotions come from home,
So I leave to build my own.
Now inside,
I hide to stay alone.
For so long, I have been sick-
So tired of being like this.
No scars on my wrist exist,
Too strong to let my beauty slip.
And for so long,
I have stood strong-
Swallowed my pride
And went on life's ride.
I've kept moving on, for so long.
