My Past Was A Lie

I've screamed my throat dry
For someone to hear me.
But the hand that covered 
MY mouth kept me away.
Lies were told in my ears
As I was held down, fighing
For a way free from this hell.
Tears weld in my eyes and
Were wiped away quickly.
But no one noticed because
I had to lie and I started to 
Believe everything that 
Came out of my mouth.
I wore a mask over my face 
One that I had not created.
My emotions were what 
I was told to wear.
I learned to survive and 
Keep people distanced.
I've pushed everyone
Away when they were
Only trying to help.
But I was still not alone.
When I pushed them away
They only tried harder.
And now that I'm healed
They are the people that
I love and cherish the most.

The mind and body plays awful tricks on the soul. Thank God we have 'They' to free our souls from internal bondage and ignorance.
