this describes someone who can't yet face her fear.
she tries and even lies to hide the truth.
but must work at her own pace until the truth and her both settle their differnces.

The Truth was holding me back
No one knows why I cried
For no reason
Night after night
The reason
The truth was holding me back
How I never believe any
compliment
But accepted any every
insult
The truth was holding me back
How I hated liars
But was one myself
How I couldn't stand a thief
Even though I was so close to one
The truth was holding me back
I couldn't speak about what had happen
it had killed me every time
The truth was holding me back
how could I look into the eyes of my
friends
family
and lie
The truth was holding me back
Thinking of all of this
It cut my heart
like ten sharp knives
The truth was holding me back
Even though she had held me tight
Said everything would would be OK
I still couldn't let go
because
The truth was holding me back
Everyone thinks I'm so strong and confident
Truly
I feel weak, vulnerable, and the total opposite of confident
The reason
The truth was holding me back
I can't wait until the the truth is my friend again
Until the truth and I no longer have to fight
Until the truth no longer holds me back
until I'm strong
and I no longer lie
to hide the truth
I know in my heart that day will come soon
I must find my light in this darkness
I know I can't do it on my own
So I plan to hold on tight to my heart and soul
The only things I can still call my own
The day the truth sets ME FREE
