    On the outside I am quiet
    shy, timid, composed
    You think I'm happy go lucky
    your wrong in what you suppose
    I don't have it all together
    though some may think I do
    Does anyone know
    or understand
    the things I'm going through?

    Can't take it anymore I want to hide
    does anyone hear me scream inside
    the anger burns
    like fire in my bones
    must keep it hidden
    no one can know

    Wish i could numb myself
    learn not to feel
    Escape into a world that is not real
    Wheres a person who will never leave?
    who wants to accept me for me

    Can't take it no more I want to hide
    Does anyone hear me scream inside?
    The anger burns
    like fire in my bones: must keep it hidden
    no one can know

    I'm a puppet to all of you
    I can't perform like you want me to
    You expect me to act happy
    be pretty
    and smart
    when my whole danm world is falling apart

    Can't take it anymore i want to hide
    does anyone hear me scream inside?
    the anger burns
    inside my bones
    I keep it hidden
    no one can know

    My greatest fear
    is that I'll end up alone
    no one to care for
    no one to hold
    thats why I'm angry
    it's not cause I'm mean
    its cause i need someone to cherish me

    A word to you who are lucky enough
    to have some someone to come home to at night
    tell them how much you love them
    hug them and hold them tight
    For those of you who have that in your life
    someone to call your valentine
    May you know that you are blessed
    and pray for those who have much less

    Can't take it any more
    I want to hide
    does anyone hear me scream inside?
    The anger burns
    inside my bones
    must keep it hidden
    No one can know.

    Yes, I hear you, Sister.

    Let not your heart be troubled, though...God will provide just who you need in who needs YOU.


    This was a beautifully poignant piece...so raw and open.



    Exquisite emotions here.


    And...WELCOME TO DESTEE! :hey:
