No One Is Supposed To Know

Life growing up was never easy for me,
Things happening that no one could see,
Sometimes I just want to shout,
And get all the bad stuff out.

First GradeBut life doesn’t always work that way,
Told what to think, and what to say,
If you stepped outside this boundary,
You’d find yourself in quite a quandary.

So, I kept it all inside,
All the things I had to hide,
I was picked on all through school,
But still the home life had to rule.

Don’t say a word, he would say,
Don’t behave in such a way,
A way where someone else might see,
What was hidden inside of me.

Things a child shouldn’t have to bear,
A life where no one seemed to care,
They all thought that I was just bad,
They didn’t know the life I had.

That was nearly forty years ago,
And still it’s hard to let someone know,
Talk with those who can help me feel,
Talk with those who can help me heal.
