It is what it is. You feel it and remember and it rocks you, tries to break you, and you have to stay strong, and keep it together, lest someone find out what happened to you.

Your body gets over it
the physical pain ends
the soreness recedes
your muscles relax

You tuck it away
try to forget
want to forgive
not stop in your tracks

But it comes up
gets written down
thrown in your face
in the night you crack

But you don’t say a word
pretend you’re alright
smile to their face
when inside you’re black

The tears fall down
you feel sorry and weep
and then you grow up.
But the price was steep
