Do you really?

Do you really know what it's like?
To have people point and laugh.
Do you really know what it's like?
To want to hide for an eternity.

When they say they don't want to talk,
When no one wants you around,
When you no longer have a safe place.
Do you really know what it's like?

Do you really know what it's like?
To want to run forever when there's nowhere to go.
Do you really know what it's like?
To hide and still feel exposed.
Do you really know what it's like to be me?

    Life is the tool of the heart, and too many uses this tool for injury ... Keep using this to sing, for in singing the poems that you feel inside, you become king over the malice, evil, and pride. One love
