The Woman Inside

There's a woman inside,
with a very big heart,
but the people outside
keep trying to tear it apart.

The woman inside can't seem
to say no,she wishes just 
once she could begin to show,
the true feelings that she feels
inside,and hold her head up
with a little more pride.

The people who know her
wouldn't know what it's like,
to go through everyday
having to put up a fight.

The people around her just
don't understand,how they
take advantage when
she tries to lend a hand.

Everyday is a battle not
knowing what's to come,
or at the end of the night
when you just feel numb.

The woman inside wants
to take her own life,
because the pain is so strong
it's like a piercing knife.

The woman inside often looks
in the mirror,but know matter
how hard she looks nothing
seems clear.

She looks and looks trying
hard to find,for once in her
life a little peace of mind.

More than anything in life
she wishes people around
her could see,The Woman Inside,
the real and true me.

    So much desire is spilling out of this write. The desire to be heard, to be seen, and to be loved just as you are. I do hope that happiness finds you and that you are able to be heard, seen, and loved. So many prayers are being sent out for you. I will light a candle in hopes that blessings are carried to you sooner. ~Lolita
