Untitled Poem

I wrote this a long time ago, originally intended as part of a song.

 

He hides secrets with white lies

Secrets that leave his soul to cry

He fights for every breath each day

Just to stay alive

He hides his pain with “I’m alright”

Knowing no one can see 

inside his heart & mind

When his tears fall, 

they fall in spades

Truth is he wants 

to break his chains

If he could only find a way
