The Explanation

I was just a boy
Hurt and no one cared
I walked my life alone
I hid how I was scared

I kept the secrets safe
No one was safe for me
The pain held in my eyes
That no one would believe

My voice that could not speak
There were no open ears
Tortured taken thing
All those lonely years

Now still the misused kid
Who resembles a grown man
Not a thing has changed
I'm tortured once again

I try to speak my curse
My words just barely heard
How else can I describe
No other knows my hurts

I am just their thing
A toy who none protect
So they continue on
Some things are worse than death

Semper Fi

The statistics? 1 in 4, 1 in 6?
...then there's me the imaginary number

i think these words describe the feeling we have all felt at some point in our lives, and they seem to resurface when you least expect it, or put your guard down. they will never lose their meaning for us and thank you for putting this into words.

It's a terrible thing when we are in a position to know - really know - that some things are indeed worse than death. I have no wisdom to offer but want you to know I hear you loud and clear.

Much love,

As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
