    Have you ever felt lonely or confused,
    Like as if there isn't a whole lot to do?

    About the problems you dealt wit,
    Problems you are afraid to tell anyone else; afraid to recieve more than what you get?

    Well I feel like this everyday of my life,
    Like my heart been sliced through wit a knife.

    Everytime I have visions in my head of these problems I pray for them to go away,
    Try to close my eyes to make them fade.

    I can't even trust my family with these problems,
    Afraid that they may tear out my limbs.

    'Cause I was taught never to do these things or ignore them all,
    When I try to discuss my them they are recalled.

    Once again I have visions in my head of these problems I pray for them to go away,
    Try to close my eyes to make them fade.

    Hopefully, one day I can find someone that I can actually trust to tell my problems,
    But for right now, I'm hanging on to stems.

    Sometimes the only ones you can trust are yourself and God, sounds like this was written from the heart.
