just a poem that I came up with about emotional pain

The soul that has held on to long

looking for something not even there

The soul that cries every night

waiting for an answer

The soul that tries to pretend nothings wrong

despite the destruction all around

The soul that longs for nothing more then answers

but only finds questions

The soul that prays for freedom

but only finds a cage

The soul that lies to the ones it loves

but has no one to love

The soul thats scared to open up

because of past pains

The soul that has thought of giving up

but held on for the hope it will get better

The soul who sees nothing but beauty

in everything but itself

The soul that wants comfort

but is to scared to seek it

The soul that walks alone

despite the friend beside it

The soul that only knows pain and sorrow

but tries to understand love and hope

The soul that has more secrets

then anyone can count

The soul that gave up

and said good bye

The soul that could no longer be strong

and finally broke down

The soul that kept up an image of happiness

to hide the pain inside

The soul whose shell finally broke

revealing pain and shame

The soul that never shows its true colors

for the fear of being judged 

The soul that is all of these things

and then some
