Secrets Within

I want to hurt myself
I want to bleed
How can I stop
This never ending need.
The pain is too much
I feel it inside
The emotions within
I try so hard to hide.
And if my family found out
They'll only get angry
They'll tell me I'm stupid
They'll tell me I'm crazy.
They like to pretend
That my past never happened
The torture and the abuse
Were only imagined.
No one must know
That my stepfather hit me
That my mother called me worthless
That men used my body.
All these secrets I carry
I hold them deep inside
I put a smile on around others
For the pain I must hide.
