    I must confess to the
    things I never said
    I walked for miles in someone elses shoes
    And they didn't fit my feet
    But I still walked in them just
    So I could say
    you're not better than me because I've been there
    Before
    I must tell that I started writing poetry to escape my own
    hell
    I have to say that I've been trapped
    In a man's eyes and I still can't set myself free
    Love is something I once did not believe in
    I felt it was my duty to have a man use him then leave him

    Sometimes I am not a nice person the same beautiful words
    I utter sometimes I use to hurt
    I want to create beauty with my music
    but I would not turn from wealth
    Some days just to live a dream
    I would compromise my own health
    I am a fire starter I bring life to my cause
    I shed tears to wash away my many flaws
    And I live life determinded not to suffer
    For the things I never said

    sometime we say and do thing unknown
    sometime we feel down or through another eyes
    we see differently or what we hold back and
    never say just feel the impact, it's okay to release
    the flicked pain it's okay to say things aloud
    i feel ya .

    This is touching poet
    We all go through issue
    We all cry-Shed a tear or two
    We have to be strong
    We will all get through

    I'm loving this piece. Just because you don't say it doesn't meant that you don't feel it. Continue to Enlighten Me!

    Thank you I enjoy just shedding life on the truth of things even if it means calling myself out about my own mistakes,flaws, and insecurities. All it takes is a small step in the right directions to ensure that the truth I share isn't compromised by the things I say and do in my own life.

    MAN, FEELING THIS JUST SIMPLY FOR WHAT IT IS.... sometimes you can regret what you haven't said.... i can raise my hand and testify to that.. then your regret what you shouldn't have said... but onw thing i remember from a girlfriend once said, you need to say it weather it's right or wrong took keep communicate and trust even if you fear what the other person might say.... say ya feelings, i hear dem and i feel them. thank you for the read
