Understand me

I know you wish I could
Start cleaning up my own mess
In this room full of worries, 
This room full of stress

I know you wish I could 
Just take a broom, sweep it all away
Out of sight,
Out of the light of day

But what I have here you see
It isn't like a dirty shirt 
That can be cleaned easily
This thing that I'm trying to hide
Its like a scar,
Its like something I can't fight.

So all I'm asking right now
Is for you to see
That all I need from you 
Is for you to understand me

    Love this poem of wanting to be understood...love the third stanza and the comparison made.
