Oh, yes it hurts today,
The pain never went away.
It comes in many forms,
But almost always is the norm.
Today, yesterday, that day last week,
I try so many ways to seek,
Relief that will make me numb,
And not make me seem to be dumb.
I have a way to put it aside,
But this way I have to hide,
When I was young I’d cut so deep,
Enough to cause my soul to weep.
I thought this was way in my past,
But the pain returns quite fast.
Trade one pain for another one,
When it grows dark, then I’m done.
