Do you think it's possible for a heart to cry?
Do you think I could just turn the truth into a lie?
Do you believe to leave the past behind?
Do you believe you can see but still be blind?

Can you change one thing to another?
Can you make a person lose some other?
Can your heart scream before your lungs?
Can you sing but your words stay unsung?

Can you can laugh but feel no joy?
Can you can feel great but still destroy?
Do you know how to put on a mask?
Do you believe in a simple task?

Can you think but not know?
Can you say yes but still say no?
Can you speak but not say?
Can you be honest and still betray?

I have been Sexually abused by my grandfather for 3 years now. People shove me in the hall, calling me these cruel names. "Worthless" "Fat" "Pathetic" All I want is for one day not to be judged by my own "friends." I cut myself. Why? Because it reveals the pain. For a moment. It like your entire mind is gone; disappeared for a moment. But once that moment is over, the sorrow and depression is back. So I cut more and more. Almost hoping someone will notice, and find me the help I need. But that's the type of things I have to do on my own. :(
