I hide myself,

I pretend that I

Am strong enough

And that is what

Everyone expected

For me to be strong,

But the truth is

I'm just to scared to let in

To know the real me

And every single time

That I trust someone enough

They scar my battered heart

They rip and tear

And I feel rejection again

And once more my shell hardens

And I struggle to let

Anybody else in

Because nobody accept

Everyone rejects me,

The real me.
